The 1972 Bills also flip-flopped to use the mesh and durene versions of both their white jerseys and their blue jerseys...


White jerseys...

Week 10 - 11/19 @ NEW ENGLAND - white durene (Mako)
Week 12 - 12/3 @ BALTIMORE - white durene (Mako)
Week 14 - 12/17 @ WASHINGTON - white durene (BDSullivan)

Blue jerseys...
Week 1 - 9/17 home vs NY JETS - blue mesh (Mako) - like to get another photo to confirm socks issue
Week 2 - 9/24 home vs SAN FRANCISCO - blue mesh (Bill)
Week 3 - 10/1 home vs BALTIMORE - blue mesh (BDSullivan)
Week 4 - 10/8 home vs NEW ENGLAND - blue mesh (BDSullivan)

week 1 vs Jets

Bill, look at the socks James is wearing (red-blue-red), in the database you have the pattern red-white-blue-white-red. I don't have time to check on Getty, US Presswire, etc, at the moment

I'm done for the day Sleep

I don't know. Mutant socks maybe???

These are all from 1972 and they have what we'd expect sock-wise...

Week 7 - blue durene


Week 9 - can't tell


Week 8 - blue mesh


This last one is from Week 2 (blue mesh) - 7 days after the Jets game pictured above. May be a one and done or (#20) Robert James used a non-uniform pair of socks. He's actually pictured above again (trying to) tackling Franco.

I don't know about that Week 9 photo.

Looking at the Randy jackson photo above and seeing how the red outline made the letters look so bold and then comparing that to Bob Chandler in the last photo I'm inclined to think that Week 9 is mesh. Perhaps the squared letters had to be made a little smaller for the longer names - or in this case a player that needed his first initial as for "B. Chandler"

O.J.'s "2" on his 32 is the giveaway. If his "2' has a slant, it's mesh. If his "2" is horizontal, it's durene.

Yes.

Also, please note Bob Chandler's NOB. It's quite thin. If it were the durene jersey, the nameplate would be much thicker and not quished in so much. These are definitely mesh.
