No other team looks as consistently sharp week after week, no matter if they're playing at home or on the road. Key element: the striped socks, which tie the whole look together. Other NFL teams could learn from that. 2 Green Bay Packers — Still the perfect autumnal color pattern for an autumn sport. Poised to snag the top spot on the NFL chart if only they'd address those distractingly large TV numbers. 3 Oakland Raiders +1 Just suit up, baby. Simple, elemental, and timeless, the Raiders' uniforms look as good today as they did back when Daryle Lamonica was tossing bombs downfield. Imagine a faceoff between this uni set and one of the newfangled designs with all the extraneous bells and whistles. It isn't even a fair fight. 4 Pittsburgh Steelers -1 Love the way those gold pants work equally well with the black jersey and the white jersey. The Steelers are also the only NFL team with a logo on just one side of the helmet, a quirk that scores a few points in the intangibles column. Sure, it'd be nice if they went back to the block numbers (you'd be surprised by how many fans still gripe about this), but that's about the only thing to complain about here. 5 Buffalo Bills +2 Stevens Wright, who designed the Bills' "charging buffalo" helmet logo, died earlier this year. This will mark the team's 40th season wearing his design, and it has never been part of a better uni set than it is right now. The blue pants, the striped socks, the white helmet -- it all looks great. And it will look even better this season, because that annoying neck roll collar (also known as the toilet seat collar) has been scrapped. Such a sharp look, it's hard to believe this was arguably the worst-dressed team in pro sports just a few short years ago. 6 San Francisco 49ers +2 Defending NFC champs still need to do something about those oddly truncated sleeve stripes. Look, guys, here's how it works: You can either have real wraparound stripes or you can have no stripes at all, but you can't have it both ways. Aside from that, though, the Niners are a very good-looking team these days. 7 Dallas Cowboys -1 Dallas' home whites rank among the most iconic uniforms in all of pro sports. But the blue jersey never feels right, and the Cowboys also lose points for having too many inconsistent shades of blue and silver scattered throughout their uni package. It's time to fix that already! 8 San Diego Chargers +4 The neck roll collar, which looked so awful last year, has been scrapped, which is addition by subtraction. The socks now have a yellow stripe, a small but positive detail that qualifies as addition by addition. Add it up, and you have a team that's moved up in the rankings. 9 Kansas City Chiefs +2 The Chiefs, like the Bears, moved their TV numbers from the sleeves to the shoulders last season. That practically qualifies as a major change for this franchise, which has had essentially the same uniform design since its inception. Some fans seem to think KC is overdue for a design change, but you know what they say about something that ain't broke, and that definitely applies here. Just one mystery to solve: The Chiefs' red pants are arguably the single most gorgeous uni element in the league, so why would they ever wear white pants with the white jerseys? 10 Philadelphia Eagles -5 Still a fairly good-looking team, but the midnight green and black trim are starting to wear out their welcomes. Remember when they wore kelly green throwbacks a few years ago? Might be time to move back in that direction, color-wise. 11 Tampa Bay Buccaneers -1 Remember when the very notion of a team wearing pewter made people snicker? The Bucs have successfully made that color their own and made us like it. Great example of a team creating a unique look and owning it. But they'd own it even more if they'd stop wearing white pants with the white jerseys (the pewter pants look way better). Bonus points for ditching the neck roll collar this season. 12 New York Jets +1 Rumors that the Jets will put a little "Butt Fumble Bull's-Eye" on the seat of each player's pants this season are almost completely untrue. Seriously, their uniforms aren't bad, although the shoulder/sleeve arrangement gets trickier to execute as NFL sleeves continue to do their disappearing act. They'd rank higher if they'd stay away from the green-over-green format. 13 Indianapolis Colts +1 The Colts' jersey stripes have dwindled over the years, to the point at which they're barely vestigial. If they can't be restored to their proper length, then it's time to retire them for good, because, at this point, they've become a distraction. 14 New England Patriots +1 Good-looking team with one major flaw: those miserable side panels on the jersey. Get rid of those and the Pats would jump several spots in the rankings. 15 New York Giants +3 Last season, we wrote that the Giants' use of gray pants for all games was making their uni set "feel drab and blah," so it's good to see them introducing a set of alternate white pants this season (here's a Photoshop rendering of how they might look on the field). One big problem still remains, though: It makes no sense for a team whose main color is blue to have such a red-centric road uniform. (A more detailed argument on this point can be found here.) 16 Cleveland Browns — The Browns' plain Jane uniform set -- loved by some, loathed by others, but, in reality, a middle-of-the-pack design -- is like The Thing That Wouldn't Die. There had been talk about the team getting new uniforms for 2014, but now that plan has been bumped back to 2015. Anyone want to take bets on the plan being postponed yet again and then being shelved indefinitely?
