Philadelphia Eagles get it right with kelly green throwback uniforms
Not all NFL throwback uniforms are created equal. Some hit hard and are crowd pleasers from the moment they hit the shelves. Others fall flat.
This has been the season of throwback uniforms, and some, like the Seattle Seahawks throwbacks, have been a huge success. However, one of the sweetest throwbacks are the Philadelphia Eagles kelly green uniforms.
The Eagles have gone back to these uniforms before, but it is still sweet to see them worn in today’s day and age. Take a look at these nice threads, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Eagles are going back to their classic Kelly Greens from the early ‘90s as their alternate uniforms this season. They’re on sale today and fans have been tailgating for them since 3:30 this morning. pic.twitter.com/p1npbWBTIY

To match the announcement, the Eagles put out a promo video which will have anyone who as around for those 90s Eagles team reminiscing about the good ol’ days.

The Eagles will wear these uniforms twice in 2023. They will wear them on October 22nd vs. the Miami Dolphins, and again on November 26th vs. the Buffalo Bills. Obviously, both of those games will be at home at Lincoln Financial Field.
