Uni Watch Power Rankings (26-50)

Welcome to the home stretch of the Uni Watch Power Rankings, as we continue to rank the uniforms from all 122 NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL teams. (If you're joining us for the first time this week, you'll want to get the full scoop on this project here.)

One thing about these rankings is that they're based on a team's full uniform set -- not just its best design. The Red Sox, for example, have one of the best home uniforms in baseball, and it's perfectly suited for the old-school environment of Fenway Park. But why do they have two solid-colored alternate jerseys? The red one, in particular, is a disaster -- that hurt Boston's spot in the rankings. Similarly, when you think of the Dallas Cowboys, you instinctively think of them wearing white jerseys, which is one of the most iconic and strongest looks in all of sports. But it's not their only look -- their blue jersey had to be factored into the equation too. That brought them down in the rankings.

As always, you can click on a team's name to see its current uniform set, and we encourage you to post your feedback in the comments or on Twitter, using the hashtag #UniRank.

On Friday, we'll finally crown our winner. See you then.
