New York will be wearing green jerseys, green pants, and white socks, according to Johnson’s tweet that features a trio of aptly-colored circle emojis and a photo of Zach Wilson rocking the combo.
This will be New York’s second game of the season wearing an all-green look, previously bearing the look in a home game against the New Orleans Saints on Dec. 12. The pickled garb was not modeled very appealingly as the Jets took a 30-9 loss and scored no touchdowns.
The Jets have donned green-on-green six times since introducing their new uniforms in 2019, with all of those games being played at home. They have a 2-4 record when resembling the Jolly Green Giant.
It is becoming a tradition of sorts for the Jets to wear the all-green uniform in their final home game. They did the same in both 2019 and 2020. Sure enough, both of those games were wins – a 16-10 victory over the Steelers in 2019 and a 23-16 victory over the Browns in 2020.

Outside of home finales, the Jets are 0-4 when wearing green-on-green in the updated uniform set. That includes the 2019 “Seeing Ghosts” loss to the Patriots, a 2020 loss to the Bills in Denzel Mims’ debut, the infamous “Cover Zero Blitz” loss to the Raiders in 2020, and the aforementioned Saints loss earlier this year.
