The National Football League has reportedly eased its uniforms policy allowing teams to wear alternate and color rush uniforms more often.
Per Albert Breer via Monday Morning Quarterback, the league has decided to allow teams the opportunity to play up to three games in an alternate or color rush uniform for the 2018 regular season.
For the Chiefs, this means they’ll have three opportunities to bring out the all-red look for the 2018 season.
As of late, the team has particularly chosen to wear the red-on-red during primetime games at home but have shown in 2017 that they weren’t afraid to pull the alternate out for road games after their color rush match up with the Raiders at Oakland Coliseum.
Still, though, Kansas City has five primetime games scheduled in 2018, four of which are on the road. Their lone primetime home game will be Week 15 vs the Los Angeles Chargers for Thursday Night Football on December 13. The Chiefs could do what they did last year and go full red for a road game or two but could also wear their alternate for select early games at home such as their home opener against San Francisco on September 23.
The team first debuted their all-red combo in 2013 against the Dallas Cowboys and has been an instant hit with the fan base. Now Chiefs Kingdom will get to see more of it in 2018.
