NFL’s ‘Color Rush’ Uniforms For Jets-Bills Was Bad For Colorblind People

The NFL unveiled their first dose of the new ‘Color Rush’ uniforms during yesterday’s Bills-Jets game on Thursday Night Football and for the majority of the viewers, it reminded them that Christmas was getting close.

But those who were watching red/green colorblindness (about 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 woman across America), it was torture.

Below is a color-blind test for those who think they may be affected by the disability, known in the medical field as Deuteranopia. Those with red-green color blindness would not be able to distinguish the number here, or would wrongly identify it.
