Earlier this week we pieced together that the Cowboys are going to wear their navy uniforms when they visit the Carolina Panthers in the season opener. We now know that won’t be the only time they rock that look this season.
According to ESPN’s Todd Archer, the Cowboys will go navy three times. They’ll go navy with the white pants (like they did in New York last season) at home against Tennessee, and they’ll rock the traditional navy tops with silver bottoms look on the road in Washington.
The game against the Titans is on Monday, November 5th. This is the one-year anniversary from when Tony Romo returned home for his first Cowboys game broadcast against the Chiefs, and it’s the same day that Jason Witten will do the same on Monday Night Football.
We’ve only really seen the Cowboys wear their navy jerseys at home on Thanksgiving over the last five years. Deviating from their classic white home jerseys for a normal run-of-the-mill home game is definitely a new thing.
This of course brings up the question, what will they wear on Thanksgiving? Dallas hosts Washington on Turkey Day, maybe they’ll go with their color rush jerseys. The thing is, Dallas plays on Thursday Night Football seven days after Thanksgiving and that’s typically been the day that they bring out the color rush jerseys. We’ll see what they end up doing.
Archer also notes that Dallas will wear their road blues on the road against the Redskins. For older Cowboys fans, this is incredible. There is something that just screams NFC East about Cowboys blues against Redskins whites in Washington. It’s classic and should be done more often.
