NFL wild-card playoffs drip check: Ray-Ray McCloud III goes edgy

The NFL playoffs are officially upon us and six teams brought their best on the field — and off of it. With a win-or-go-home mentality, the fashion statements need to be stronger than ever.

Fashionable teams like the Atlanta Falcons and Cleveland Browns no longer have the chance to show off their swag. But the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals — teams that each had strong showings during the regular season — have made the playoffs and the opportunity to continue their runway walk.

A major key to a good game day outfit is the accessories. Balaclavas have been a popular trend all season and continued in the postseason. An unexpected classic piece of headwear showed up during the wild-card playoffs that turned heads.

Here’s the NFL wild-card weekend drip check:

5. Ray-Ray McCloud III — San Francisco 49ers

Ray-Ray McCloud III returns to the list with an edgy look. His puffer jacket is from Who Decides War. It’s the cream version of the orange statement piece Donovan Peoples-Jones wore in Week 14. The stringy grid ties in with the cream balaclava, which features stitching over the mouth to make it look like a skull.

His peach pants are from Kapital and declare that the 49ers are the West Coast Repair Service, here to reclaim their legacy.

4. Kayvon Thibodeaux — New York Giants

We don’t know what any of the brands are that Kayvon Thibodeaux is wearing. But that doesn’t even matter because his boldness to wear a top hat is what puts him on the list.

The classic accessory is the cherry on top of an all-black look that includes a blazer layered with a checkered fur jacket.

3. Trevon Diggs — Dallas Cowboys

Trevon Diggs came game day ready in this Canadian tuxedo. He paired a denim jacket with subtle stripes with a pair of jeans where one leg was purple. It’s a creative twist on a classic pairing.

2. CeeDee Lamb — Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys were definitely the best-dressed team of wild-card weekend. Go ahead, scroll through and see for yourself. Week 16 winner CeeDee Lamb looked cool, calm and collected in this velvet smoking jacket. Stylist London Wilmot does not miss.

1. K.J. Osborn — Minnesota Vikings

K.J. Osborn hands down takes the wild-card crown. He showed up battle ready in this all-black look, which is head-to-toe Prada. His jacket has the perfect boxy cut, and his cargo pants his combat boots finish off the statement perfectly.
