The biggest changes are in the sleeves and jersey numbers. The sleeves are now the same color as the jersey, and the stripes on the sleeve and shoulder have been redesigned to be more prominent. The jersey numbers now have a black or orange outline instead of an orange drop shadow, and the numbers have been removed from the shoulders. The pants have also been slightly redesigned, with a striped panel and no stripes that reach around the front of the leg. 

You can't deny that those are changes, even though they're on the subtler side. The uniforms are provoking a matching reaction, with most people responding "Is that it?" or "Eh, they're fine." That may not be the reaction the Bengals were hoping for, but a universal shrug is definitely better than instant revulsion.
