There was thought they’d break out the all-black alternates for this prime-time game. Apparently that won’t be the case.
The Eagles are going with their typical home uniform instead: midnight green jersey coupled with white tights.
Though it’s a little surprising the Eagles aren’t going with their all-black attire, the Birds still have five home games left after Monday night. They can wear their alternate uniforms for a maximum of two games.
Here’s a look at the Eagles’ upcoming home schedule. With no all-blacks on Monday night, when do you think they’ll bust them out?
Week 8 - vs. San Francisco 49ers (Oct. 29, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)
Week 9 - vs. Denver Broncos (Nov. 5, 1:00 PM ET, CBS)
Week 12 - vs. Chicago Bears (Nov. 26, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)
Week 16 - vs. Oakland Raiders (Dec. 25, 8:30 PM ET, ESPN)
Week 17 - vs. Dallas Cowboys (Dec. 31, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)
It seems safe to rule out the 49ers and Bears games. The weird thing about saving them for the Broncos/Raiders is that those are AFC opponents. And the weird thing about saving them for Week 17 is that game could be meaningless for Philly if they continue to win and Dallas continues to struggle.
Wearing the alternates made a lot of sense this week. Big division game. National spotlight.
Oh well. It’ll be midnight green on Monday night.
Did the Eagles make the wrong call by not wearing their black jerseys on Monday night against Washington?
