Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott showed off the throwback helmets the team will wear for their Thanksgiving Day game against the New York Giants.

The Dallas Cowboys are having a truly remarkable season, as they managed to win four of their five games with star quarterback Dak Prescott sidelined with an injury.  A major factor is their stifling and dominant defense. Entering Week 9, Dallas holds a 6-2 record and second-place in the NFC East in a tie with the New York Giants.

Speaking of the Giants, the Cowboys are scheduled to play them for the second time this season. The rivalry game will be in the afternoon spotlight, as AT&T Stadium will host the game on Thanksgiving Day.

The Cowboys were scheduled to wear their throwback uniforms for that game. Running back Ezekiel Elliott posted a tease of the uniforms on his Instagram story. Specifically, he shared a photo of the helmets they will wear for that game.

This season, the NFL announced that they will be allowing teams to wear alternate helmets. So, the Cowboys jumped at the opportunity by bringing back their throwback white helmets, complete with the navy blue star and two stripes along the top. The helmets will correspond with the team’s throwback jerseys, which they wore back in the 1960’s.

Earlier this year, the Cowboys and Giants faced off on Monday Night Football, with the latter wearing their color rush uniforms, inspired by their 1980’s uniforms. The Cowboys were able to hand the Giants their first loss of the season by the score of 23-16. Dallas’ defense pressured Giants quarterback Daniel Jones at will, hitting him 12 times and sacking him five times.

Cowboys fans, there are a little less than two weeks until you get to see the return of the throwback helmets. Until then, Dallas will take on the Green Bay Packers in Week 10 and the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11 before facing the Giants on Thanksgiving.
