The Broncos uniform included replacing their helmet logo with a reindeer, a move a Bronco called “a little childish.”
Another member of Denver was willing to go a step further, though, and fully embrace the uniform. He asked if he can change his nameplate to “Dasher” or “Dancer” instead of his last name.
The Rams uniform received mixed reviews — separate Rams players called it “trash” and “ugly as f—.” But some positive comments included “cool,” “kinda hot” and “fire.”

However, both squads are 4-10 and in last place in their respective divisions.
