Hey, that’s cool. The New Orleans Saints announced Wednesday that they’ll be wearing their throwback uniforms in Week 11’s game with the Los Angeles Rams, dusting off their old-school black and gold kits for the first time since 2016. The Saints lost that game, but they’re 2-1 in throwbacks dating back to 2006.
Of the 45 players who got on the field in that 2016 game against the Detroit Lions, only six remain: left guard Andrus Peat, wide receiver Michael Thomas (on injured reserve), running back Mark Ingram II, defensive end Cameron Jordan, defensive tackle David Onyemata, and kicker Wil Lutz.
If you’re curious, here is the record New Orleans has achieved in each of their different uniform sets since 2006:
White jerseys, white pants: 9-4 (.692)
“Black and Gold” throwbacks: 2-1 (.667)
White jerseys, black pants: 42-27 (.609)
Black jerseys, gold pants: 24-15 (.615)
White jerseys, gold pants: 37-24 (.607)
“Color Rush” alternates: 9-6 (.600)
Black jerseys, black pants (.571)
