Initial artifacts from the 2021 NFL regular season have made their way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

First up, a game ball from the regular-season opener between the defending Super Bowl (LV) champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys played on Sept. 9. The Buccaneers went on to win 31-29 via a last-second field goal by Ryan Succop.

The other artifact received was the newly designed Cincinnati Bengals uniform (jersey and pants) unveiled during the 2021 season. This particular set was worn by quarterback Joe Burrow during the Bengals’ thrilling 27-24 overtime victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 12.

The Bengals’ new uniform is the first major update since 2004. It features their “new stripes.” The Bengals’ entire collection includes three jersey tops (black, white and orange) and three pants (black, white with black stripes and white with orange stripes).

Both artifacts from the 2021 season are on display in the Pro Football Today Gallery.
