Sakamoto: 49ers Floss Black Uniforms For Week 5 TNF ‘Color Rush’ Game



The NFL announced on Tuesday, that the San Francisco 49ers will be wearing their all black alternate uniforms for Week 5 (Oct. 6). A matchup in which the 49ers play host to division rival Arizona Cardinals, it’s the Cardinals who will have to wear their regular white (away) jerseys.

I spoke with many of the players and saying they love these uniforms is an understatement. Checkout the photo gallery below and if you haven’t yet go pick yourself up a RGB (Red, Gold, Black) jersey at your local 49ers team store.

The Cardinals were trying to wear their black uniforms for that week’s ‘Color Rush’ game, however since the 49ers are the home team, they have dibs! Sorry, Cards!
