The Chiefs donned all-red uniforms for only the second time in the 54-year history of the franchise on Monday.

The Chiefs first unveiled the look — which features red jerseys and red pants (instead of their customary home white pants) — in last year's home opener against the Dallas Cowboys. The Chiefs won, and the all-red look was a hit with the players, many of whom said they asked coach Andy Reid to let them do wear the combination.

That was the only time the Chiefs wore all-red last season, which suggests the team only plans on using the look for special occasions.

Apparently, Monday Night Football qualifies as such.
