Tampa Bay Bucs Ranked One Of The Best Uniforms In The NFL
In two days many NFL teams will put on their official game uniforms for the first time this year. The first preseason game (aside from the Hall of Fame game) kicks off the 2023 season. The Tampa Bay Bucs will be at home taking on the Steelers and sporting a top-ranked uniform in the NFL.
Bets Dressed recently published their official uniform ranking of all 32 NFL teams. They listed the best (Los Angeles Chargers) down to the worst (Washington Commanders). Good news Buccaneers faithful: your hometown squad cracked the top five.
In the top category, labeled “elite, the cream of the crop,” the San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals, and Dallas Cowboys round out the top four spots.
Bucs Are #5
Here’s what we know about the Bucs’ 2023 official threads. First, there are many different combinations. The standard in the NFL is that the home team decides their uniform choice. Usually, that means wearing your color at home and a white jersey (with corresponding pants) on the road. With the Bucs, we know that’s not often the case. They are one of the teams that always keep it interesting and sometimes choose to wear white at home.
In 2020, the team brought back the uniform design that was sported from 1997-2013 (when the Bucs won their first Super Bowl). This means a red and white jersey, matched with either the pewter or white pants. Then, there’s the all-pewter/gray alternate option.
It’s funny that Bets Dressed used the term “cream of the crop.” 2023 marks the return of the Bucs’ classic “Creamsicle” throwback uniform. The team announced that we will first see these worn during their week six game against the Detroit Lions (October 15).
“The sweet spot is finding sharp primaries paired with alternates that bring down the house (throwbacks or otherwise). Tampa Bay is in that perfect place,” Bets Dressed wrote.
It is unknown what uniform we can expect on Friday, or during their season opener September 10 vs. the Minnesota Vikings. One thing is certain, however. The team will be looking sharp.
