Eagles to Wear Black Alternate Jerseys to Begin 2014 NFL Season

Strange, but true.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

According to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer, there is some news regarding the Philadelphia Eagles jersey and, no, it doesn't involve Kelly Green.

The Eagles will be wearing their black alternate jerseys against the New England Patriots on Friday night. The team will also continue using their black alternate jerseys as a replacement for the standard midnight green home uniform heading into the early part of the 2014 NFL season. Berman has more on the reason why this temporary change is taking place:

The Eagles' black jerseys tend to be polarizing. Some fans think they're great, others really don't like them at all. But whether you like them or not, now you know. It's something to keep in mind when planning out your game day attire.
