With the NFL in Mexico City for Texans-Raiders on Monday Night Football, the league had local artists reimagine every helmet. The results are below.

I don't think it's UGLY, just better suited to a powderpuff league. MOST are pretty hideous though (as seems to be the trend with the promotional "alternate helmet" schtick the NFL's been doing lately,) and casually replace team mascots (the Bills are piranha now? The Bears are some kind of mecha-orca?)

Yeah, that's one of the better ones, IMHO, and there are a few. Maybe half a dozen; the other 26 or so are hideous even when not completely revisionist (the Seahawks helmet looks like what Seahawks EAT, and I don't know wtf happened to the Cheatriots.)

I seriously wonder if someone mistranslated the meaning of the team names.

The Vikings one is literally 3 naked dudes standing on top of buildings. I know art is subjective but after careful consideration, taking all factors into account, and reviewing each design and discussing them with a panel of my peers, I can definitely say these are pretty ******* awful.

I saw this the other day and my first thought was "what the hell does a whale have to do with a bear? Did the whale eat the bear?"

I guess I should count my blessing that work has blocked the source of the hideousness.

Yeah, my thought was maybe it's a whale in Lake Michigan? I mean, obviously there aren't any, but a bear and a whale have nothing else to do with each other so....

These are awful. The Bus, Jags and Lions were the only ones I thought were cool.

I've heard there's a lot of drugs in Mexico. This kind of proves that statement.

Somebody find this artist and beat them repeatedly with a large stick, for the good of humanity.

The article says MULTIPLE artists designed the helmets, which the visible signatures support. A few "got it" and did a nice good job (I'll say Bengals and Jags, maybe Cards and Fins.) Most didn't. I still think Denvers helmet is pretty as far as it goes, but it doesn't exactly scream, "FOOTBALL!" with bits of bloody gristle in its teeth.

29 out of the 32 actually look good. Idk what they were thinking with the Broncos helmet. It looos like it has a bronco and a bear and coyote on it. Wth

Jags helmet is badass. I guess they could use a break.

Delish art on nearly all of them. Eagles helmet is my fav. If I wanted to drop acid and stare at a helmet I guess.

Some comically awful football helmets--so absurdly non-sequitur you want to know the full story.

Well, anyway...I'm stoked about the Broncos-Coyotes-Hawks-Salmons vs. Chiefs game tomorrow, how bout y'all?
