The Dallas Cowboys will play host to the Denver Broncos on Sunday and are going to do so in a bit of special fashion. Literally.
Times are good for America’s Team as they are riding a six-game winning streak. The hope is that they can extend their mark to seven straight victories, and this week in particular they will have a bit of history on their side.
While the Cowboys are, in fact, America’s Team, some of the team’s younger fans may forget the ode to the United States that the organization had 45 years ago. During the 1976 season, the Cowboys wore helmets that featured one red stripe replacing their traditional navy blue ones on their helmet that border the wider white stripe. It was as a result of their celebration of the United States Bicentennial.
Many Cowboys fans have wanted to see these helmets return and those people have gotten their wish. As a tribute to the United States armed forces the Cowboys will be rocking the red, white, and blue on Sunday.

Forgive me for getting ahead of myself here, but the Cowboys are clearly going to win this game by 50 points and now going to win the Super Bowl. These helmets are that incredible.
In all seriousness it’s great to see the organization paying tribute to the brave men and women who serve in the armed forces. These are going to look sharp.
