Panthers unveil new all-black helmet, debut set for Week 10 of 2022 season
The Carolina Panthers join the growing list of teams planning to don alternate helmets during the 2022 season.
The club announced Tuesday it will wear new black alternate helmets this season to go along with an all-black color rush uniform on Thursday Night Football against the Atlanta Falcons on Nov. 10.

“Sometimes guys tap into an alter ego depending on what they’re wearing,” star edge rusher Brian Burns said, via the team’s official website. “Whenever a team wears all black, or black accessories, it just brings out that dog in them, the evil side.
