We are just about two weeks away from the regular season beginning for most of the NFL which obviously includes the Dallas Cowboys. It both feels like that is very soon and incredibly far away.
Things will start for Dallas on the road against the Los Angeles Rams. The game will be seen by what will likely be a record audience as it is set to take place on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
While there will not be any fans in the stands, the lights will be bright and a brand new stadium will be unveiled to the world. The Rams have been working towards their new digs in Los Angeles for four years now and are finally set to show it off.
It was the Cowboys that actually played against the Rams in their return to California back in each team’s first preseason game in 2016 (Dak Prescott’s professional debut at that). That day, the Cowboys wore their road navy jerseys which, as fate would have it, is what they will wear in Week 1.
What will the Cowboys be wearing throughout the rest of the season, though? We now know.
The Dallas Cowboys will wear their white jerseys 14 times this season
An objective truth is that uniforms in football are very important. Certain things have to make sense, like the numbers that players wear for example, and uniforms have to look, well, cool.
The Cowboys have one of the best get-ups across the National Football League and their white home uniform is among the most recognizable in sports. Interestingly, the Cowboys are the only team that uses their white jersey as their home outfit which means they wear it quite often because when they play road games their opponents are typically wearing their colored jerseys.
If you were wondering just what the Cowboys will be wearing in each game this season we now have our answer. ESPN’s Todd Archer noted on Thursday night that Dallas will wear navy on the road in Week 1 and their color rush jersey (which debuted in 2015) on Thanksgiving Day against the Washington Football Team. Outside of that, it is white jerseys all the way.
Many have asked so here we go: Cowboys will wear navy jersey in opener vs. Rams and Color Rush uniform on Thanksgiving. The rest of the games they will be in their normal white jerseys. A year ago, they wore navy jerseys eight times. Blue-jersey jinx be damned.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) August 28, 2020
As Archer notes, the Cowboys blue jerseys have long been associated as a jinx of sorts to the club (shout out Super Bowl V). At one point in time, that curse belonged to blue jerseys that were more of a royal variety, and the perception continued when the team embraced more of a navy concept.
This all means that the Cowboys will wear their navy and color rush jerseys just one time each this upcoming season. The team debuted a new look for the navy jerseys on the road against the New York Giants in 2017 when they paired it with the white pants that went with the color rush uniform as opposed to the silver ones that have long accompanied it. The idea was actually originally that of former wide receiver Dez Bryant.
Interestingly enough, three of the first four opponents for the Cowboys this season (including the first two) are debuting new uniforms entirely in 2020. The Rams and Falcons both received criticism for their new styles while the Browns got tons of praise for returning to a much more traditional look.
What do you think about the Cowboys wearing white jerseys basically all of the time in 2020?
