Looks like the Patriots carried the '68 uniforms into the '69 preseason

I saved this as "1969 Sid Blanks"

- Blanks played for the Oilers in '68
- the only game between the Patriots and the Bengals in '68 was in Boston in December and:
--- the Patriots are not listed in the White at Home page for '68
--- No. 17 Mike Taliaferro did not play after the 7th game of the season
--- No. 22 in 1968 was Gene Thomas and he did not play

The linemen in the first photo seem to have NOB, No. 44 in the second photo seems to have NNOB (maybe only veterans had NOB)

The game was played at the Bowling Green University stadium on 8/10/69; Bowling Green's colors are similar to the Browns and Bengals, which explains the orange seating. It was the first exhibition game for both teams.
