It’s an orange peel. It’s a traffic cone. No, it’s the Miami Dolphins.
The NFL is trying to “Light Up Thursday Night” this season by introducing “Color Rush” uniforms for Thursday Night Football games. Each team has its own vibrant jersey alternative. The Miami Dolphins introduced theirs on Thursday, unveiling some all-orange duds.

The Twitter peanut gallery might not be as active next week, which, really, is a loss for us all.
