The Bengals wore nine different uniform combinations during the 2022 season, with four different jerseys, three different pants and three different socks featured at least once. Cincinnati unveiled new uniforms prior to the 2021 campaign, marking the team's first significant redesign since 2004.
The Bengals' most frequent — and successful — look over the past two seasons has been white jerseys, white pants (black stripes) and black socks. Cincinnati is 8-2 overall when wearing that combination, including a 4-1 mark in 2022. The team has worn that combination in each of its four road contests over the past two postseasons, collecting a 3-1 record.
Cincinnati also boasts a 3-0 record since 2021 when wearing its orange jersey, which is the team's designated alternate jersey. The Bengals donned the orange once in the 2022 season, in a 27-24 home win over Kansas City in Week 13. NFL rules allow teams to wear designated alternate jerseys and/or color rush (CR) uniforms and/or throwback uniforms for a combined total of three regular season games. In 2022, with the league's approval for the use of alternate helmets, Cincinnati introduced a new helmet branded as the "White Bengal," featuring a white base coat and the team's iconic black stripes.
The helmet debuted in Week 4 on Thursday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins, a matchup the Bengals won 27-15 in front of a white-out crowd at Paycor Stadium. They sported the "White Bengal" again in Week 11, in a 37-30 victory at Pittsburgh. In the NFL's revised uniform policy, teams can pair their new helmet with an alternate, classic or Color Rush uniform. To accentuate the "White Bengal" helmet, the Bengals chose to bring back the fan-favorite Color Rush look — a white jersey/pant combination featuring black stripes and black lettering. The team wore the Color Rush uniform seven times from 2016-20.
Here are the Bengals' records in every possible uniform combination (regular season plus postseason):
|White (CR)*||White (Black) (CR)*||Black||White*||2-0-0||1.000|
* — The Bengals do not have a throwback uniform.
