Cowboys Alternate Uniforms Could Return in 2022 with New NFL Helmet Rule

The announced on Thursday that teams will be allowed to wear throwback once again with their alternate , starting in 2022. The league previously did not allow alternate helmets due to precautions, forcing most teams to put their fan-favorite alternates aside as opposed to wearing a mismatched uniform.

The Cowboys are still known for their clean white jersey and silver helmet of course, but the blue tops and white helmet they've previously worn on gives Dallas a signature look to wear when they're the only team on TV at the time.

The Cowboys wore their last season for Thanksgiving, giving them a similar jersey look with the stars on the shoulders – although smaller, and still with the normal helmet. The last time their true throwbacks made an appearance was Thanksgiving 2012, a game the Cowboys lost to the Redskins 38-31.

Since this rule won't be in effect for the upcoming season, the Cowboys will miss potential throwback match ups against the Buccaneers to kickoff the season with Tampa in orange, New England in the more vibrant red, white, and blue, or Denver in the orange jerseys with sharp blue helmets. Knowing only their divisional schedule for 2022, longtime East fans can begin to dream about the Cowboys wearing white helmets against the Eagles in Kelly green or New York with “Giants” written across a darker blue helmet.

The Cowboys along with the rest of the league will have to submit their plans to wear any alternate helmets by this July 31st, something that can only add to their creativity from previous years with the road blues at home, traditional color rush, or standard blue jersey with white color rush pants (how you doing, seafoam fans?).
