The start of the 2016 NFL regular season is upon us, and Sunday features a full slate of games.
However, this Sunday won't be just about NFL football. It also marks the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that shocked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.
To commemorate the event, teams around the league are planning patriotic displays, but no game will match the patriotism of the New York Giants' opener against the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.
For one, George W. Bush will be in Arlington to perform the opening coin toss alongside two NYPD officers who responded to the World Trade Center attacks.
For another, Under Armour is providing their Giants' endorsers with special stars and stripes gloves for the game:

But the most eye-catching display might come from the footwear of Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz. Nike is hooking up both Giants receivers with these:

That's pure patriotic perfection.
If you want to see these beauties in action, Giants-Cowboys kicks off at 4:25 p.m. EST this Sunday.
