As is Thanksgiving tradition, the Dallas Cowboys will be playing on their home turf, this time against an NFC East rival in the New York Giants. And it looks like the Cowboys have a little surprise for the game, accordng to Ezekiel Elliott’s Instagram story. 

Elliott posted what looks to be a throwback Cowboys white helmet with the blue star and blue stripe down the center, which will be worn by players on the holiday. 

The helmet is just the beginning of the throwback look for the Cowboys, who announced in July they would be wearing alternate uniforms for this game.

“We’re beyond excited to bring back our throwback helmets this season,” Cowboys Chief Brand Officer Charlotte Jones said at the time. “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.”

This uniform is a tribute to the Cowboys’ 1960 inaugural season, when they wore the white helmet with a jersey that had a navy base with white numbers combined with white sleeves and a navy star on each shoulder.

Only in 1975 and 1977 did the Cowboys take a backseat on Thanksgiving, when the St. Louis Cardinals were awarded those games to promote the team.
