For the first time since 2012, the Dallas Cowboys will wear their retro jerseys and white helmets as they take on the New York Giants in their Thanksgiving Day matchup at AT&T Stadium.
The throwbacks fell by the wayside under the NFL’s health and safety protocols, but the league approved rules that allow for a second helmet that the Cowboys — and their fans — are happy to flaunt.
“We’re really excited to bring our retro helmets back this season,” said Charlotte Jones, Cowboys chief brand officer. “The white helmet, along with the retro uniforms that honor our teams from the 1960s, has long been a fan favorite and we’re excited to once again bring back the tradition of wearing these helmets and uniforms on Thanksgiving Day.”
Left tackle Tyron Smith, entering his sophomore season in 2012, is the only current member of the team to have worn the throwback uniform.

The look dates back to 1960, the Cowboys’ first year in the NFL, when they wore white helmets before adopting the iconic silver helmet in 1965.
The throwback uniform will be one of four uniform combinations that the Cowboys will wear this season along with the traditional White, Navy and Color Rush uniforms.
