If you’ve ever found yourself complaining about the New Orleans Saints and the need to mix up their uniforms, then you’ve certainly got your wish this season. First, it was the Color Rush gig from Thursday Night Football against the Carolina Panthers. Now, it’s going to be the 1967 throwback uniforms taking the stage against the Detroit Lions.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Saints announced that these special uniforms will be worn for Week 13’s game. You’ve seen these before, but it’s been well over five years ago when the Saints hosted the Houston Texans at home during the 2011 season.

To honor the 50-year anniversary of the franchise, the Saints will sport the 1967 black jerseys with gold numerals (white trim) with the white and gold sleeve stripes. The pants are gold (or some say mustard) with black/white/black stripes. The socks will be white with black and gold stripes.

In addition, Drew Brees is one of the many players across the NFL that will be wearing some special cleats to honor their foundation.
