Sunday Night: Back In Black


The Eagles are once again going to be Back In Black on Sunday night when the Arizona Cardinals come to town. For the second time this season, and just the fourth time in franchise history, the Eagles will don their all-black uniforms for the prime-time matchup. Back in Week 6, the Eagles were decked out in the all-black uniforms as they routed the Giants, 27-7.

The Eagles sport #BackInBlack for the first time this season as some new members of the team don the uniforms for the first time. View the full gallery here...

This isn't the first time the Eagles will have sported black jerseys against the Cardinals, and the other two occasions turned out very well for Philadelphia fans. The team went with the black tops for the Thanksgiving game against Arizona in 2008. The Eagles won the game 48-20, and the win was part of the Eagles' stretch of winning four of their last five games to make the playoffs. Five years later, The Eagles again wore the black jerseys as they beat Arizona 24-21 in 2013. The win was the Eagles' fourth in a row as the team won seven of their last eight games to take home the NFC East crown.

What will Sunday's game have in store for the next chapter of the black jerseys? Only time will tell.
