This Is What The Jets-Bills Game Looked Like For Colorblind Fans (Video)
For last night's Jets-Bills game, the NFL debuted "Color Rush" jerseys, which looked cool for most folks, but were apparently nightmares for others.
According to the National Eye Institute,
As many as 8 percent of men and 0.5 percent of women with Northern European ancestry have the common form of red-green color blindness.
So for those who are colorblind, last night's game, featuring striking red and green jerseys, was basically impossible to watch.
Here's what the game looked like for colorblind viewers.

This matchup is a color blind person's nightmare. Teams are blending together. — Gregg Rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) November 13, 2015
I feel bad for the red/green colorblind people trying to watch this game... 1/7 men have it pic.twitter.com/pcsww3EtSy — Tyler Phillips (@typhilli) November 13, 2015
Sorry folks, being colorblind means a massive headache from TNF. No second half tweets from me. — Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) November 13, 2015
Sorry, everyone, but green is the only color the National Football League cares about.
