What’s old is new again.

For the first time in a decade, the Cowboys will wear their white helmet with a single navy star and classic throwback uniforms for their Thanksgiving game against the Giants, the team announced on Thursday.

That means Dallas is one of many teams that will take advantage of the league ridding itself of the one-helmet rule this year.

“We’re beyond excited to bring back our throwback white helmets this season,” Cowboys chief brand officer Charlotte Jones said in a statement. “The white helmet, along with the throwback uniforms honoring our teams from the 1960s, have long been a fan favorite, and we’re thrilled to bring back the tradition of wearing those helmets and uniforms on Thanksgiving Day once again.”

The Cowboys last wore the helmet and uniform in a 38-31 loss to Washington on Thanksgiving in 2012. Then-rookie Robert Griffin III threw for 304 yards with four touchdowns in the contest.

  1. Yep the helmet and uniform Jones tried to cram down fans throats in the 90s …

  2. Love it. I always looked forward to rooting against “America’s Team” in their whites on the Sunday late games and late Thanksgiving game when I was younger. I’m going to feel 40 years younger though I’ll miss not seeing Tom Landry on that sideline.

  3. I can’t think of any other pro sports franchise that so badly wants to live in the past

    The packers say hold my beer. They still talk about the roaring 20’s

  6. Hate the Cowboys, love the throwbacks and bringing some fun back to the game.

    Hard to believe that the owners were playing wait-and-see with the other leagues and just leaving this money on the table for so long.

  7. Great memories of rookie RG3 torching Dallas that Thanksgiving. I welcome the nostalgia.

  8. And yet they can’t master the final 15 seconds of a game. Helmet color was never an issue.

  9. Hmmm troubling. While I am a Cowboys Fan my entire life I don’t subscribe that Jerry Jones knows what he is doing. Id rather hear about the status of the following:
    Kicker?
    Depth at defense
    Why we keep signing bargain basement players
    How much has Dak thrown in the offseason? What is the plan to improve his accuracy?
    What’s the plan on team discipline? What are we doing about it?
    Kellen Moore Qualifications as OC and the plan for him to improve
    Offensive Line? Lots of questions
    These are things the media should be addressing since they seem to escape our joke of a General Manager

    Browns fans still talk about 1946 and 1964 like it matters. Browns fans love to talk about how great the Browns history is. Im 51 and they are under .500 since I have been alive.

  11. Wow. Cowboys fans can at least make fun of Cleveland fans, you don’t say. But wow.
