The NFL has yet another idea to get more merchandise on the shelves.

With that, the league announced during halftime of this week’s Thursday Night Football game that several teams will be sporting new threads (that fans can buy later) when they play their weeknight game later this year.

During weeks 10, 11, 12 and 15, the eight teams will be sporting some form of a new uniform. Some will be just be more of their traditional colors, like the New York Jets and the Carolina Panthers. Others, like the St. Louis Rams and the Jacksonville Jaguars, will look more like highlighters and a jar of mustard, respectively.

Here’s the league’s teaser video on the new looks:

The NFL is reportedly also considering having both teams playing each Thursday night wear their color uniforms next season.
