Eagles To Wear All Black Sunday Night For First Time

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) --- According to Dave Spadaro of the Philadelphia Eagles, the Birds will wear their black uniforms for their week six divisional matchup with the Giants on Sunday night at Lincoln Finical Field. On Monday, Spadaro responded to a tweet from a fan saying, "Black jerseys on Sunday night."

Wait, black pants too?

"We will be wearing all black, for the first time ever I think," Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin told the 94WIP Mike & Ike Show on Monday. "We've always wore black jerseys with white pants, but we will be in all black which is going to be very cool for Sunday night."

"I'm hearing that too," CB Brandon Boykin told the 94WIP Afternoon Show about the all black uniforms. "That's what I've been hearing."

The 3-2 Giants come into Philly winners of three straight, while the 4-1 Eagles are facing offensive questions after scoring just two touchdowns on offense in their last eight quarters of play. You can expect the Linc to be rockin' on Sunday night.
