The Miami Dolphins will be wearing the home version of their 1966 retro jerseys for their game on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys (4:25 pm ET on FOX), which will closely resemble their appearance in Super Bowl VI.
This marks the ninth consecutive season that the Dolphins have worn the retro design, which was introduced in 2015 as part of their 50th season celebration. In 2019, a road version was added to the rotation.
The home version features a traditional stripe pattern on the sleeves of the aqua jerseys, white helmets with a gray facemask and vintage logo on the sides, and white pants, while the road version naturally contains white jerseys.
Miami stands at 9-4 in the home version of the throwback jerseys and 2-3 in the road version, including a 31-17 victory over the New England Patriots on October 29. This marks the fourth time they will wear both in the same year, entering the 2019-21 season.
The Dolphins hope, of course, that the result on Sunday will be quite different from Super Bowl VI, which the Cowboys won 24-3. The most noticeable visual difference between that game and today’s match is that the Cowboys wore gray pants to match their helmets at the time.
In addition to the uniforms, Miami will paint the field at Hard Rock Stadium with a retro design. This will include the Dolphins‘ 1966-73 logo at midfield, as well as a retro helmet, vintage lettering, and an NFL crest in the orange end zones.
Miami used this end zone design in a 17-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2018, a 37-31 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in 2019, and a 33-24 win over the Patriots to close out the 2021 season, but had a diamond design for the other throwback games.
