I lost; the Eagles lost. It was an ugly game for every possible reason. Let's just not talk about it.
Week 13 Round-Up [click to enlarge images]
The Buccaneers wore their Creamsicle throwbacks against the Panthers, which are ugly, but in that "so bad it's good, but no more than twice a season, please" sort of way.
In less positive news, both the Texans and Cardinals went monochrome in their respective games, navy over navy for the Texans and red over red for the Cardinals. Neither is a good look, but it means that the Cardinals may trot out their rare (though not particularly appealing) white over red combo now that their red pants are available this season.
Finally, for trivia lovers, the Redskins and Jets mixed it up by having the Redskins wear their maroon over white (instead of yellow) combo at home and the Jets in their, again, rare (and, again, unappealing) white over green.
Never one to shirk completeness, let me point out that the Steelers wore their throwbacks (with the yellow helmets) on Thursday night's game. Sure, it was a Week 14 game and should be in next week's UniDiction Round-up, but I'd hate to think of you would think I was being incomplete!
Full Dolphins uniform breakdown and UniDiction are after the jump.
Eagles vs. Dolphins UniDiction
Lots of details in the picture, but the main take-away is that the Dolphins are an "almost always" White at Home team. Every now and then, they pull out their orange alternates for home, night games, but the Eagles announced they'd be in green this week, so the Dolphins are in white. Though not rigidly defined, the Dolphins generally wear white pants with the white jersey for home games and break out aqua pants for away games when they wear White jerseys (meaning: almost any away games).
Check out the Dolphins Uniform history on the Gridiron Uniform Database, and notice the 1997 "tweaking" which changed the shade of Aqua and added the 90s-riffic drop-shadows on the numbers. Generally, their uniforms have been adjusted numerous times (striping and logo tweaks, mainly), but no significant changes since 1966. Pretty impressive for a design to last that long and still look good.
The Eagles are in their typical home combination, Green over White. I'll omit the full break-down, but in short, it's their best combo of the current uniform set, and worth, let's say, 22 points (generally, the Midnight Green is simply too dark).
Dolphins – 21
Eagles – 22
