Last week’s Thursday night NFL matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets, number four on our list, made headlines due to a unique spectating struggle. Both teams wore monochromatic uniforms as part of the “Color Rush” NFL campaign launched by Nike. With the Bills wearing red and the Jets in green, colorblind NFL fans had a hard time differentiating between the two teams.
Approximately 10 million Americans suffer from some form of color blindness, and red-green color blindness is the most common type. The condition is also more prevalent in men than women.
The campaign is running for four Thursday night games and was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first NFL game broadcast in color, which aired on Thanksgiving Day in 1965. After the backlash, the NFL released a statement saying they will take color blindness into account for future games.
You can catch the rest of the “color rush” matchups with your Slingbox Thursday nights on NFL Network.
