The New Orleans Saints announced this week they will wear their 1967-68 throwback uniforms during today’s game against the Carolina Panthers, which kicks off at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.

This marks the second consecutive season that New Orleans will wear the throwback uniforms, which feature a simplified fleur-de-lis logo on the helmet, black jerseys with old gold numbers and traditional stripes on the sleeves, old gold pants and socks that match the sleeves.

The look is similar to what the Saints wore at home during their first two seasons as a franchise, though it is paired with their standard Vegas gold shell instead of old gold since they chose to introduce a black helmet as their second option last season. 

New Orleans is 6-1 in the throwback uniforms, including wins over the Tampa Buccaneers and New York Giants in 1994, a win over the Buccaneers in 2002, wins over the Buccaneers and Houston Texans in 2011, a loss to the Detroit Lions in 2016 and a win over the Los Angeles Rams in 2022.

Of course, that’s not to be confused with the Saints’ Color Rush uniforms, which have been worn at least once every season since 2016, as those were based upon their road look during those same seasons but are paired with the aforementioned black lids. 

The Panthers, meanwhile, will counter with their white road jerseys and either white or black pants. They are 0-2 in white jerseys with white pants this season, including a three-point loss to the Saints in Week 2, and 0-4 in white jerseys with black pants.
