Well pro-Action Green folks, you won.

The Seattle Seahawks are flying high with a 7-5 record, and unlike last season, 9-7 is almost certainly going to get Seattle back into postseason play. They can boost their wild card positioning greatly with a win on Monday night against the 6-5-1 Minnesota Vikings, who will not only have to contend with the loudness of the 69,000+ fans at CenturyLink Field, but also the extremely loud “Color Rush” jerseys the Seahawks will be wearing in primetime.

That’s right, Action Green is back. This jersey was introduced to the masses in Week 15 of the 2016 season against the Los Angeles Rams, back when the NFL’s Color Rush theme was limited exclusively to Thursday Night Football. Seattle trotted out Action Green again versus the Arizona Cardinals last year, but the NFL decided not to make Color Rush mandatory for the 2018 season, so use of these jerseys was at the discretion of each team.

The previous iteration of a green Seahawks jersey came way back in 2009 in the dreaded Jim Mora season. “Lime Green” was worn for Seattle’s 25-19 home loss to the Chicago Bears, after which the uniform combo was unofficially retired.

So tune into MNF on December 10th as the Seahawks look to go 3-0 in Action Green!
