The Cincinnati Bengals wore some atrocious uniforms Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a 27-3 losing effort.

I usually try not to be too critical on uniforms because some originality and new stuff can get the fans excited. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, these things sucked. The moment I saw them, I knew the Bengals were about to get torn up. You simply can’t take the field in uniforms that resemble the refs and expect to win.

Who the hell designed these things? Honestly, who thought it would be a good idea to put these on the players and then trot them out in front of America?

They’re arguably the ugliest uniforms I’ve seen in a very long time.

Again, there’s nothing wrong with experimenting when it comes to uniforms. Teams should want to push the limits. If done correctly, alternative uniforms can be straight fire.

Look at Wisconsin’s throwback unis from this past weekend for proof of that fact.

However, these uniforms from the Bengals are just downright absurd. It’s no mystery why they got rocked by the Steelers.

I’m honestly surprised they didn’t lose by more wearing those threads.
