From coaches' caps to players' cleats and officials' whistles, the NFL went pink on Sunday.
In support of breast cancer awareness, the color will be worn on the field and on the sidelines during games throughout October. The league and its players collaborated with the American Cancer Society for an initiative reminding women 40 and older about the importance of having an annual mammogram.
Footballs included pink ribbon decals, as did the padding for goal posts, and the color was splashed on fields all around the NFL.
