NFL Fashion Archives: Best Pregame Attire Before A Busy 7 Week

October 24, 2021


The NFL’s seventh Sunday of the 2021 season has arrived, and many players are waiting for their fair share of luck when we get to the halfway point.

Several players will face off against their former teams or visit old grounds as two AFC powerhouses – the Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans – meet in a rematch of last season’s conference title game. High stakes are common as an NFL season finds its groove, so it’s okay for everyone to dress accordingly.

With several highly anticipated matchups to look forward to, let’s take a look at the best pre-game threads from the Week 7 Sunday roster.


QB Aaron Rodgers, TE Robert Tonyan Jr., WR Davante Adams, RB Aaron Jones

The Packers have come back in a big way since their 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. Green Bay is only the second team in league history to win five straight games on the heels of a loss in the season opener by more than 35 points (Detroit Lions 1991).

To the surprise of very few, Rodgers has remained as calm, collected and collected as he looks in this week’s pregame outfit as fall weather approaches. He has thrown 12 touchdowns to just one interception during Green Bay’s winning streak.

Week 7 could bring more luck to the Packers, who have the best home record in the NFL (16-2) since Matt LaFleur became head coach in 2019.

Tonyan, who has started four games this season after catching 11 touchdowns in 2020, the most of his career, sported an appearance similar to his QB on “National Tight Ends Day.”

This soccer party was first created by George Kittle in 2018 and is held every fourth Sunday in October.

Adams, who enters a touchdown reception this week before tying Sterling Sharpe (65) for the third-most in Packers history, made sure to do a trick with the proper kicking game before taking the field.

And of course Jones is never far away in his signature hat. Hopefully, he can help break his three-game streak without a rushing touchdown against the league’s 19th-ranked defense.


Kansas City Chiefs

QB Patrick Mahomes, WR Josh Gordon, TE Travis Kelce, S Tyrann Mathieu, S Juan Thornhill

Always sharp and focused, Mahomes enters Week 7 with another graceful pregame number as Kansas City seeks back-to-back victories for the first time this season. Despite throwing an interception in five straight games, the 2018 MVP has multiple touchdown passes in each of his last nine starts dating back to last season.

When asked about his team’s progress to this point, Mahomes he was honest about how he feels: “We are not even close to where we want to be.”

Fortunately for Kansas City fans, the team seems quite poised to handle business and find its groove.


QB Sam Darnold

Carolina’s fourth-year flagger kept his pregame appearance simple before visiting MetLife Stadium as an opponent for the first time in his career as the Panthers prepare to face the New York Giants. Although Darnold will not face the New York Jets, with whom he spent his first three seasons as a professional, being back in New York could help fit the boat for Carolina.

Last week, he posted his lowest single-game completion rate of the season (41.5 percent) en route to the Panthers’ third straight loss since starting 2021 with a 3-0 record.


New York Jets

QB Zach Wilson

A much-needed bye week could help the Jets rebound from their own struggles. Wilson broke the windbreaker before his first road trip against the New England Patriots, who are 12-0 at home against rookie quarterbacks since Bill Belichick became head coach.

New York is sure to lean on Wilson to warm up its offense this week. The Jets have logged just 79 yards and are scoreless in the first quarter this season, making them the first team since the 2008 Lions to run scoreless in the opening draw in six games.


QB Joe Burrow, WR Tee Higgins, S Vonn Bell

It’s incredibly easy for the Bengals to look and feel good going into Week 7. The team’s four victories have already tied last season’s total as they entered Sunday’s meeting with the AFC-leading Baltimore Ravens (5-1). .

Burrow & Co. will have a lot of work ahead of it given the team’s recent struggles against its division rival. Cincy scored just six combined points in two games against the Ravens last season and has scored just one offensive touchdown in the last three meetings.


Tennessee Titans

QB Ryan Tannehill, Cubs

Whose heart is not warmed by a litter of puppies?

The Titans have a partnership with the Nashville Humane Association and Mars Petcare, so it’s all right to open the catwalk for these furry friends.

Tannehill, who ranks fifth in QBR since becoming Tennessee’s starting quarterback in mid-2019, made sure to get his good chunk of good luck from a new friend.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Tannehill has partnered with Mars Petcare to ensure these puppies and many others can find a safe home.


Baltimore Ravens

WR Marquise Brown, WR Rashod Bateman, S Chuck Clark, CB Marlon Humphrey, FB Patrick Ricard

Brown is enjoying possibly his best season since turning pro in 2019. He is averaging 15.2 yards per reception, the best of his career, and is on track for his first season with 1,000 receiving yards. That said, the third-year pro is coming off a season low of 35 receiving yards last week.

Fortunately, though, few things can provide a proper confidence booster better than the tie Brown wore when he entered M&T Stadium.

Well, of course, that depends on whether you ask Ricard about the finer points in fashion.
