Texans unveil first uniform redesign in franchise history

The Houston Texans unveiled four variations of new uniforms, the team’s first redesign since the expansion franchise began playing games in 2002.

The Texans said 10,000 surveys and 30 focus groups were utilized to guide the new uniform design.

In addition to their traditional deep steel blue and white uniform, the Texans revealed a “Battle Red” helmet with a new logo that the team says is inspired by bullhorns with a bullhead logo on the back.

Houston also will feature a light blue helmet as part of its Color Rush look, complete with “H-Town” on the front of its uniforms.

The Texans also featured a light blue “H” that is outlined in red on a dark blue helmet.

“Today, for the first time since 2000, we are so proud to reveal our new uniforms. They are even more special because they are inspired by and for our fans,” Texans owner Cal McNair said in a statement. “Our fans asked us to be more H-Town and we delivered. They were with us every step of the way and there’s truly something for everyone over the four uniforms.”

Chiefs to wear home red jerseys in Super Bowl LVIII

The Kansas City Chiefs will be wearing their home red jerseys when they take the field against the San Francisco 49ers for Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.

Kansas City, which is the designated home team for the game on Feb. 11, was afforded the selection of uniform color.

The teams will be wearing the same uniform colors from Super Bowl LIV in February 2020. The Chiefs recorded a 31-20 victory over the 49ers in that game.

Wearing red on Super Bowl Sunday largely has mixed results for Kansas City. The Chiefs wore that color in a 23-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV, however they dropped a 31-9 decision to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. The Chiefs wore white in their 35-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the very first Super Bowl as well as their 38-35 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII last year.

Their loss to the Chiefs aside, the 49ers have won the two other Super Bowls in which they wore white uniforms.

San Francisco posted a 26-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XVI and breezed to a 55-10 win over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV.
