Your Favorite NFL Team Just Got An Amazing Mexican Makeover
Mexico City’s Paseo de la Reforma is many things to many people. For tourists, it’s the perfect place to grab a bite and see the sites. For others, it’s the perfect street to hold protests and march through town. Today, however, Paseo de la Reforma is the perfect place for Mexican artists to display their interpretations of iconic NFLs helmets. And while it wasn’t an easy task (because fans can be very protective of their team’s look), many of the artists captured not only the spirit of a team, but created something entirely unique. Take a look…
The New York Giants
This helmet captures the New York skyline with what appears to be a snow-globe style background.
The Tennessee Titans
This one has a kind of Dr. Seuss meets “Yellow Submarine” kind of vibe.
The Washington Redskins

Nothing like a screaming skull and a full-on feather headdress to put intimidation into the minds of your opponents.
The Oakland Raiders
The helmet captures the spirit of pirates and plunder with a real nod to a drawing style that wouldn’t look out of place on Adult Swim.
The Denver Broncos
This is an obvious nod to the American West, where untamed broncos wandered freely among predators and prey.
The Dallas Cowboys
This cowboy is chillin’ like you do when your team has the best record in the NFL.
The Philadelphia Eagles
Say what you want about this one, that detail is eye candy.
The Indianapolis Colts
No sign of their iconic horseshoe, but it’s hard to deny how genius the use of tiles with the Colt’s color-scheme is.
Whales Bears (?)
While it looks great, this one is definitely an example of someone taking artistic license with a team. The only connection I see here is that Chicago had a baseball team called “The Chicago Whales” in 1914.
The San Diego Chargers
For anyone who has seen the gorgeous street art in San Diego’s Barrio Logan, this helmet is perfect.
The Seattle Seahawks
Ever hear the phrase, “eyes like a hawk?”
