(FootballStL) -- The St. Louis Rams are bringing back the threads the team wore during their Super Bowl season of 1999 for two games this season.

The royal blue and yellow gold throwbacks will be worn to commemorate two of the more memorable games in team history: the NFC Championship win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Super Bowl victory against the Tennessee Titans following the 1999 season.

The 1999 threads will be worn when both teams make a trip to play in St. Louis this season. The Titans visit on November 3 and the Buccaneers will play on December 22.

“Our throwback jerseys have evoked great fan support and passion over the past few years, and with a home schedule that features both Tennessee and Tampa Bay, we have a unique opportunity to wear our throwback jerseys against opponents that remind fans of the joy that St. Louis Rams football can bring our community,” Rams Executive Vice President of Football Operations/C.O.O. Kevin Demoff stated. “Some of our fans’ greatest memories involve the Buccaneers and Titans games from the 1999 postseason, and this is a great way to celebrate those pinnacle moments in franchise history while wearing the colors of the 1999 championship team.”  

It might be a little awkward for current Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, who was the then-head coach of the Super Bowl-losing Titans, but it won’t be the first time the Rams wore the vintage look since he arrived to St. Louis. His team wore the jerseys once last year in a game that provided one of the best game’s of the season, a 16-13 overtime victory against the San Francisco 49ers.

There is no word if the ‘Bob ‘N Weave’ celebration will return to the field with the classic uniforms.
