If you're winning and feeling and looking good while doing so, why not keep the trend going, right?
Since the 2019 season, the Buffalo Bills have featured white facemasks to their uniforms twice, and both resulted in convincing wins.
The first game was on Thanksgiving Day in 2019 against the Dallas Cowboys where Josh Allen and the Bills put up a 26-15 win to improve to 9-3 on the season and inch that much closer to a playoff berth. That would happen two weeks later against the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football.
This past season, the Bills brought back the white facemasks for their Week 13 Monday Night Football matchup with the San Francisco 49ers in Arizona. The Bills ended up winning that game, 34-24, to, again, improve to 9-3 on the campaign. The win also saw Josh Allen go 32-of-40 for 375 yards and four touchdowns, while also earning himself AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors.
With the increasing popularity of the white facemasks, in addition to the success the Bills have had while wearing them, the team announced Thursday it will make the permanent switch to white from the gray facemasks the franchise has worn since 2011.
The Bills had some fun ahead of the announcement, given it is April Fools' Day, releasing a video with a number of players giving their "approval" of the gray facemasks. A couple of hours later, they released another video with the official change from gray to white.
The Bills' social media team has been hard at work over the last 24-48 hours, with the team's official Twitter account also releasing a hilarious video of wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie prank calling a number of his teammates and coaches, only to hang up shortly thereafter with some ridiculous reasoning.
Who knows what this team will have up their sleeve next with more than five months to go until the start of the 2021 regular season.
