When the Cowboys entered the league as an expansion team in 1960, then team president Tex Schramm decided that they would wear white jerseys at home. This gave the fans the opportunity to see the jerseys of different colors of the visiting teams.
Cowboy fans have become accustomed to white T-shirts.
After the Cowboys lost to the Browns in the 1968 playoffs and then in Super Bowl V to the Colts, both times in blue shirts, the Cowboys and their fans began to think of blue shirts as a curse.
The “curse” of the blue jersey has dissipated over time.
Now, the Cowboys have opted to wear their navy blue jerseys with silver pants on Sunday against Chicago at AT&T Stadium, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. This is rare for a team that plays at home outside of holidays and prime time.
The Cowboys first wore their blue jerseys at home in a non-holiday game in 2013.
