Kelce has become one of the most beloved Eagles in franchise history. He finally got the chance to dress in Kelly Green when the Eagles faced the Dolphins.

The Philadelphia Eagles brought back the Kelly Green uniforms in 2023 for a memorable win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football.

While the throwbacks don’t bring up memories of an era of glory, fans obsess over the legacy the unforms represent. It wasn’t difficult to notice when Lincoln Financial Field was flooded with Kelly Green gear on Sunday night.

The Eagles certainly backed up their head coach’s statement with their most impressive win of the 2023 season. The Dolphins came in with all the hype.

However, they couldn’t handle Philadelphia. The Eagles shut down the supposedly high-powered attack in a comfortable 31-17 victory.

Sirianni wore the threads with authority as the home crowd cheered on the Birds. An outstanding performance from the defensive line inspired nostalgia for beloved teams with Reggie White and Jerome Brown. White’s son even attended the game and drew a loud ovation from the Philadelphia crowd.

A Love Affair for Eagles Fans

The Eagles are more central to the culture of their city than any other team in the NFL. Generations of Philadelphians have passed down fandom to their children and grandchildren. Wearing the Kelly Green has become a tribute to the long history.

It reminds Eagles fans that they’ve taken a few punches to get to a point when they can appreciate modern success while honoring the roots of a beloved tradition and the identity of the fan base.

The love affair became obvious when the Kelly Green gear flew off the shelves when the Eagles released the merchandise over the summer of 2023 and announced the plans for the Dolphins game.

Fans wore that gear proudly to create an aesthetic spectacle at the Linc for Sunday Night Football.
