Monday will mark the second (and likely final) time the Eagles wear black during the 2019 season. The team previously wore their alternate jerseys when they defeated the Chicago Bears at home back in Week 9 on Sunday, November 3. That’s the last time the Eagles actually, you know, won a football game.
The Eagles’ history of wearing black against the Giants has typically worked out pretty well for Philadelphia. The black Birds beat the Giants 27 to 0 — their first shutout win in 18 years — on Sunday Night Football in 2014. The Eagles then beat the Giants 27 to 7 on Monday Night Football in 2015. The Eagles most recently defeated the Giants while wearing black in Week 12 of the 2018 season.
We’ll see if the Eagles can keep up their dominance of the Giants on Monday night.
Side note: This game might be the last time the Eagles ever wear their black jerseys? Earlier this year, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said the team hopes to have their Kelly Green alternate uniforms available for the 2020 NFL season. There’s been no word on that since, however, so we’ll believe it when we see it.
