I noticed that the San Diego Chargers helmets are different colors, for home & away games.

Away = white

Home = dark blue


Do the Dallas Cowboys have home & away helmets too ?....or did they do away with the silver helmets, a while ago.

Anyway.....does anybody know if there are any OTHER NFL teams that use alternate colored helmets ?

Do you think more NFL teams should do this ?

Maybe this is a good idea for a few teams, but probably not most. I wouldn't recommend it for the Vikings or Packers.

Maybe for the Browns; anything would be an improvement over what they got now.

They don't have different home and away helmets. The NFL doesn't allow that, unless those are throwbacks or alternates.

Yes the Dallas Cowboys white and blue are throwback helmets.

Same with the San Diego Blue and Gold.

The Chargers switched to white helmets for all games this year. Maybe you're thinking of last year, when they still had their dark blue helmets, but they brought out their white ones for a few throwback games, where they also wore their powder-blue jerseys. Those white helmets also had the player's numbers on the sides, under the lightning bolt. The new white ones don't.
