Week 8 vs. Green Bay Packers (2021)
And finally, the most recent installment of the Cardinals’ Color Rush tour game this past Thursday against the Green Bay Packers. It was a game where the Cardinals’ offense looked inept for most of the contest, scoring just 14 points over the first three quarters.
But a fourth-quarter touchdown brought the Cardinals within three points before a defensive stand at the goal line gave Kyler Murray and Company one more chance to score. The drive started at the one-yard-line, and over the game’s closing moments, it looked like the Cardinals were about to pull off the improbable.
But miscommunication between Murray and receiver A.J. Green sealed the deal for the Packers, and it handed the Cardinals their first loss of the season. Coupled with their first loss in 2021, the Packers handed the Cardinals their sixth straight loss while wearing the Color Rush uniform.
We will see if the Cardinals wear the look again this season, or if they opt to wear their black-on-white alternates again. But if the Cardinals opt for the Color Rush again, history is not on their side when they don the look.
