The 2009 NFL season marks the 50th anniversary for the eight teams that played in American Football League, and plans to celebrate that benchmark were announced Tuesday at the NFL Annual Meeting in Dana Point, Calif.

The American Football League, which merged with the NFL in 1970, played its first season in 1960 with eight teams. They were the Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs (played as the Dallas Texans), New England Patriots (played as the Boston Patriots), New York Jets (played as the Titans of New York), Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and Tennessee Titans (played as the Houston Oilers).

The NFL will highlight the 50th anniversary of those teams during "Legacy Games" throughout the 2009 season. During one home and one road game, former AFL teams will meet head-to-head while wearing their chosen historic uniforms.

On Sept. 14, ESPN will host a Monday Night Football doubleheader that will be part of the NFL's celebration of the 50th anniversary season of the AFL. The first game (7 p.m. ET) will pit the Bills against the Patriots, the decade's winningest team (102-42 since 2000), in Foxborough, Mass. The nightcap (10:15 p.m. ET) will be an AFC West showdown as the Raiders host the three-time defending division champion Chargers.

Also, the Bills will take on the Titans in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, Aug. 9, in Canton, Ohio. The game will be televised nationally by NBC at 8 p.m. ET.

The NFL and the eight former AFL teams are planning to celebrate the 50th anniversary season with numerous events this year.

History of the AFL, 1960-69

NFL Network, NFL.com and NFL Films will commemorate this anniversary with unique content and programming highlighting the history of the AFL and the original eight teams.

A "legacy" collection, featuring new retro-themed apparel and products, will be introduced this summer and will be available on NFLSHOP.com and at other retail locations. Among the merchandise offered will be hats, T-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets and pennants.

Game-worn jerseys and signed memorabilia will be auctioned at NFL Auctions throughout the season, with the money raised going to the NFL Player Care Foundation.

Below is a list of what each of the eight original AFL teams will wear as their historic uniforms during the 2009 season:

They are gross enough that I may actually think about it.

My first trip out to a Broncos home game I saw some kid wearing a mustard yellow Tripuka jersey, no lie.

FWIW, I like the old Buffalo and NE uni's...it'll be good seeing them on the field again.

Perfect we have the shortest coach in the whole ex-AFL, and he doesn't even has a mustache like Jeff Fisher.

Fisher is listed at 5'10 from his playing days, so from just eye balling it McDaniels is about 5'8 ish

I was about to say the same thing.

Then again, I remember meeting Shanny. I'm 5'7" and Shanny couldn't have been an inch taller than me.

That's why Shanny and McDaniels went to coaching. Had they had the height I have no doubt they both would have been solid-great NFL QB's simply due to their football intelligence alone.

McDaniels looks like he's wondering "is that **** on Norv's face contagious? Man I don't want to catch that, looks like an Ebola survivor or some ****."

I kinda like the unis. They're hideous, but they're different and interesting. I also really like the Texans' helmets.

You know he was gett'n his chops busted in the back rooms! Welcome to the drama of being a HC! Here's a little salt to throw in the wound, just to remind yourself to not get cut like this again.....I love it.

I wonder how Misery folk are going to react to being reminded that they are in fact, another Dallas team.
