The dreaded blue jerseys are making a return to AT&T Stadium. The Dallas Cowboys will not be able to wear their traditional Thanksgiving throwbacks thanks to new NFL rules that prohibit teams from using alternate helmets as they improve their awareness on concussions. , so they will be going with their blue jerseys against the Oakland Raiders.

It will be the second time this season that the Cowboys suit up in blue.

The Cowboys wore their blue jerseys on Sept. 29 when they took on the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium, which is a game that they lost.

If you are a Cowboys fan or NFL uniform buff, you are aware of the poor history that comes along with the Cowboys blue uniforms, so the team’s fans will be nervous as they watch the action and hope to avoid an upset loss after their Thanksgiving Day feast.

When the Raiders and Cowboys previously faced off on Thanksgiving back in 2009, when both teams were wearing their throwback looks, Dallas won the meeting 24-7. It was the first Thanksgiving game at Jerry’s palace and they will hope to continue their Thanksgiving success against Oakland in Week 13.
