For the second time this season, the New Orleans Saints will look a little different than usual on game day.

In honor of the 50-year anniversary of the franchise, the Saints will sport the black jerseys and gold pants style worn during the team’s inaugural NFL season in 1967.

The tops with have gold numerals trimmed in white as well as white and gold sleeve stripes. The pants are mustard-like gold color with a white stripe flanked on each side by black outer stripes. The socks will be white with black and gold stripes.

Unlike past use of these throwbacks, New Orleans will have the “Saints at 50” anniversary logo patch seen on their usual uniform tops and located on the front of their jerseys on the left hand side.

The Saints last donned these throwback against the Texans in New Orleans during the 2011 season. The first time these first-season uniforms were worn as throwbacks was back in a 2002 home game against Tampa Bay.
