Falcons pulling out the black jerseys

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

The Atlanta Falcons are wearing black throwback jerseys for the second time this season. If they lose to San Francisco, it may be a long time before they're seen again.

The Falcons' first "modern interpretation" of their 1966 uniforms didn't go well as they lost to the Chargers 33-30 on Oct. 23 after leading by 17 points.

The Falcons wore red helmets with their black jerseys in their inaugural 1966 season but are using their normal black helmets due to NFL safety rules.
