On November 12, the NFL debuted its new "Color Rush" jerseys on a Thursday night football matchup between the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills. The Jets, who have a green and white team colors wore jerseys that were all green. The Bills, who have red, blue, and white team colors wore jerseys that were all red.
