For Sunday’s game against the Bears, the Dallas Cowboys will sport a unique look.
According to ESPN’s Todd Archer, “The Cowboys will wear their navy jerseys with silver pants Sunday against Chicago at AT&T Stadium. A rarity for a non-holiday/primetime game.”
Dallas’ home whites were once unheard of in the National Football League, and are now almost as recognizable as the Yankees’ pinstripes.
This tradition began in the 1960s, when Tex Schramm decided to go against the grain so Cowboys fans could see a variety opponents colors during Cowboys home matches. It made for a better and more unique product on the field.
The Cowboys’ navy look was traditionally reserved for Thanksgiving Day. However, Dallas has been pulling them out more often over the years.
2013 was a historic year for the Cowboys when they wore their blue uniforms to home for the first ever time in a non-holiday match. They will break new ground on Sunday at 1 pm.
