The Cincinnati Bengals are hoping for a touchdown when it comes to their new look.

In a Jan. 21 Twitter post, the team teases a new look coming in the spring of 2021. The team will be sporting some new stripes on its uniforms, according to a video posted on the social media channel.

The short clip offers a timeline glimpse into the team's uniforms over the past decades, spanning from stripe-less "The Originals" starting in 1968, shifting to "The First Stripes" in 1981, then to the "Leaping Tiger" in 1997, and next to the "Modern Stripes" in 2004 until 2020 (and the white alternative "Color Rush" between 2016-2020). 

The teaser provides no hint as to what the new uniforms will look like, but a story on the Bengals website indicates that the team's tiger-striped helmet is here to stay.

The Bengals ended its 2020 season 4-11-1.
