The Fortnite Battle Royale community has been given an early glimpse of the new NFL cosmetic items added to the game.
Despite the fact that the NFL uniform skins, pickaxes, gliders, and emotes don’t become available for purchase until November 9, certain content creators have been given the chance to rock these cosmetic items a few days early.
This includes Twitch superstar streamers Ninja and TimTheTatman, both of whom are die-hard fans of the NFL, and more specifically, the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys respectively.
So it doesn’t come as a surprise that they both displayed the colors of their favorite teams when they first got the chance.
Here are images of Ninja donning the Lions jersey skin with the number 23, which is worn by one of his favorite players Darius Slay.

TimTheTatman showed off some of the new NFL cosmetic items in his inventory while deciding to go with #82 on his Cowboys jersey, in honor of the recently retired and iconic player Jason Witten.
Team SoloMid streamer and YouTuber dakotaz also got early access to the new batch of cosmetics, and he decided to go with the female version as his NFL character.
