The 1994 season was the NFL’s 75th anniversary, and teams that season wore throwback uniforms to commemorate.
Several teams made some changes to the actual jerseys from the past. For example, the Buffalo Bills retained their red helmets even though they changed the rest of their uniforms. The idea was (I think) that changes to helmets and such might confuse players or fans or, um, the NFL’s uniform police (?).
Dallas wore a throwback jersey when the Cowboys hosted the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football on Monday, September 19, 1994. The Cowboys’ throwback uniforms were mostly faithful to those worn between 1960 and 1963. Differences are the focus of these two trivia questions:
1. What was the major difference between the uniforms actually worn from 1960 to 1963 and those worn on September 19, 1994?
2. What else was different between the uniform worn at home on September 19, 1994 and those worn at home from 1960 to 1963?
Here’s a photo puzzle showing the throwback uniforms in question.
