Bills to wear all-white vs. Jets

The Bills announced they will wear their all-white uniforms Sunday against the New York Jets. It will be the first time in 25 years -- since a home game against the Colts on Oct. 1986 the team -- will wear their white jerseys at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The Bills will wear their royal blue jerseys for the next two road games, at Dallas and Miami. Both of those teams traditionally wear white at home. With no Bills throwback uniform game during the 2011 season, the team decided it was a chance to play in white in front of the home fans. Like most NFL teams, the Bills almost always have used their dark jerseys at home. During the Chuck Knox era, starting with the team's home opener against Miami in 1980, the Bills regularly wore white at home.

Former Bills kicker Scott Norwood will receive the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Distinguished Service Award at the game.

In addition, the Bills will recognize area military members as part of their Veteran’s Day recognition and pregame festivities. Wounded warriors and local military members, who participated in the event to unveil the team’s new uniforms, will be in attendance to present the game ball.
