Bills at Dolphins to have a 1970s look: Throwback uniforms for both teams to be used

The Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills will meet in a Week 17 game in Miami to end the 2017 regular season. The game, however, will look more like a 1960s or 1970s match up between the two AFC East rivals. Both teams will be wearing their throwback jerseys for the game.

Before the season, the Dolphins had announced they would wear the look for the Monday Night Football game against the New England Patriots in Week 14 and in the season finale in Week 17. Now, the Bills, who also wore their throwback jerseys in Week 8 when they beat the Oakland Raiders, will join Miami with the old uniforms.

Miami beat the Patriots when they wore their all aqua look with the offset Dolphins logo on the helmet and the black shoes.

Buffalo will wear all white with the red buffalo on the helmet.

The Dolphins will also have their field painted with the old logo at midfield and the endzones will be painted with the aqua and coral diamonds.

No matter how this game turns out - a win by the Dolphins would keep the Bills out of the playoffs for the eighteenth straight season - it should look great with the throwbacks from both teams.
