New Dallas Cowboys Helmet Earns Mixed Reactions (Photos)

For the first time since 1976 the Dallas Cowboys will wear a red stripe across their helmets this weekend to honor America’s armed forces and Medal of Honor recipients.

Dallas is scheduled to take on the Denver Broncos on Sunday in a ‘Salute to Service’ to showdown.

“This will truly be a special day for all of us as we salute the men and women around the world who protect and defend our country,” team owner Jerry Jones said in a press release. “We are honored to have our Medal of Honor recipients in attendance, representing the 3,508 recipients of the nation’s most prestigious military decoration, who made heroic sacrifices, many the ultimate sacrifice, while preserving our freedom.

“The red stripe on the helmet provides a beautiful ribbon to wrap around this salute to those who currently serve our country’s military—and the patriotic love and appreciation that we all share for those who came before them.”

Fans responded to the announcement immediately. The reactions were extremely mixed:

Also worth keeping an eye on heading into this weekend is the status of quarterback Dak Prescott. He missed last Sunday’s game and the Cowboys have been holding off on having him legitimately practice until Thursday. At that point, it should become more clear whether he’ll be available for the Denver game.

Last weekend Prescott and his girlfriend went viral with their Halloween costumes – but fans were hungry to see him return to the field.

Will he be on deck when the Cowboys pull out their sleek new helmets on Sunday? Time will tell.
