Los Angeles Rams Will Rock the Throwback Blue and White Helmet On Thursday Night Football

The Los Angeles Rams aren’t participating in Color Rush this year. But that doesn’t mean they’re out of the game.

Remember when the St. Louis, now Los Angeles, Rams played the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and it looked like ketchup (catsup?) and mustard bottles running all over the football field? If you’re a Rams’ fan, of course you do! It was one of seven games where mustard won (it is the superior condiment), and looked pretty good doing it.

It was almost one year ago when the Rams dawned their Color Rush unis on Thursday Night Football. And on Thursday night in Week 15, the Rams will once again be playing in primetime, and once again with a different look.

But they won’t be dressing in the all gold unis from 2015. This year they’ll go with an even older throwback look, rocking the blue helmet with white horns from the early 1970’s.

The team has made no mention of the actual uniform choice, but it just makes sense for them to wear the all whites on Thursday night. We’ll see if they decide to spice things up.

The Seahawks, however, will be in full Color Rush mode, wearing what they call the “Action Green” look.

Winning in Seattle is never an easy task. But maybe, just maybe, with a new coach and a new look, the Rams can pull out a win this Thursday.

Also, if you were interested in the Rams’ Color Rush unis from 2015, it appears that that Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley jerseys are now available for purchase ($149.99). I’m sure there are still plenty of Nick Foles’ jerseys out there, as well.
