The Carolina Panthers will once again wear their black alternate helmets during Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, starting at 1:00 pm ET on FOX.
This is the second consecutive home game against the Falcons where the Panthers will sport the helmets, introduced last season for the first time, featuring light blue decals and a black face mask.
The helmets will be paired with Carolina’s all-black Color Rush uniforms, just like in last year’s 25-15 victory over Atlanta on Thursday Night Football.
„I’m a big, big fan,“ said rookie quarterback Bryce Young this week when asked about the uniforms. „Very excited for them.“
In addition to the uniforms, Sunday will also feature the Panthers‘ „Inspire Change“ game, celebrating black culture with performances by HBCU bands and dancers at halftime and during timeouts.
Before last season, Carolina exclusively wore silver helmets from their inaugural 1995 season, with their uniforms remaining largely unchanged.
