Photographic evidence has surfaced that not all of the Redskins had the 'NFL50' patch on the left shoulder of their 'stripeless white' practice jerseys worn for their game in New Orleans.

The video clip embedded in the following tweet shows receiver Charley Taylor making a TD catch. As he rolls to the ground in front of the official, his blank left shoulder can be seen.

 First noticed in this amazing video of their Season opener in Los Angeles, The Lions began using 2 different helmet colors - red for skill players and black for linemen.

Further photographic evidence shows that this was not just for night games.

1943 NY Giants @ Phil-Pitt Steagles

 This photo comes from the book Last Team Standing about the Phil-Pitt 'Steagles.'

An excerpt from the book concerning the Giants game states...
"As he (RB Jack Hinkle) stood searching for a crack in the onrushing blue wall, Hinkle thought about how good it would feel to show Steve Owen just what he was missing. Then Hinkle dropped the ball. He barely managed to recover his fumble, collapsing on the ball on the six-yard line an instant before the blue wall came crashing down."
This indicates the Giants were in blue jerseys that night.
