New unis: No major changes for AFC North

By Jamison Hensley

I waited an hour to see the unveiling of the new Nike NFL uniforms and -- swoosh! -- no major changes for the AFC North teams.

The Steelers and Browns still have their iconic looks. The Bengals still have those six black stripes that have been on their helmet since 1981. And the Ravens still have the same purple and black color combination that's been with the team since its first game 16 years ago.

No Oregon-like uniform makeover. No new-look bird head for the Ravens or reappearance of brownie elf for Cleveland.

From my viewpoint, the new uniforms sure look a lot like the old ones. Click on the team names to see the uniforms from every imaginable angle for the Bengals, Browns, Ravens and Steelers.  (Note: Due to Nike server issues, these links are temporarily unavailable.)
