As part of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the AFL, the NFL is allowing each of the eight original AFL teams to wear throwback uniforms for one home and one road game this season. The chosen uniform designs are (according to nfl.com):

Buffalo Bills 1965 AFL championship season: White helmet featuring a simple red buffalo.

Denver Broncos 1960 season: Brown and yellow uniform; brown helmet.

Kansas City Chiefs (Dallas Texans) (Played in Dallas from 1960 to 1962 before moving to Kansas City.) 1962 AFL championship season: Red and white uniform; red helmet featuring an outline of the state of Texas.

New England Patriots (Boston Patriots) 1963 divisional championship season: White helmet featuring the original Patriots logo.

New York Jets (Titans of New York) 1961 season: Gold and navy uniforms; navy helmet.

Oakland Raiders 1963 season: White (away) jersey featuring silver numbers outlined in black; silver helmet with original Raiders logo.
