The Texans game kicks off the NFL’s Thursday Night Football package and marks the only time this season the Bengals will wear Color Rush jerseys (photos). The Bengals Color Rush jerseys were inspired by the Cincinnati Zoo’s famous white tigers and feature a sleek, classic design that stands out in the primetime lights (video).
