It’ll be a visual rematch of Super Bowl VI this Sunday in Miami, as the Dolphins wear their gorgeous aqua throwbacks against the Cowboys. So the uniforms will be very similar to what these two teams wore when they faced off in the big game on Jan. 16, 1972 (which, as it happens, was the first Super Bowl watched by a Long Island boy who would later grow up to write about uniforms). Here’s how that game looked:
This Sunday’s game will also feature a retro field design:
This will be the Dolphins’ second throwback game this year, although the first for the aqua uniform. They wore white throwbacks on Oct. 29, when they defeated the Patriots, 31-17. Here’s a look at that throwback uni (additional photos here):
The last time the Dolphins wore the aqua throwbacks was Oct. 23 of last year, when they went retro for a 16-10 victory over the Steelers.
Obviously, they should promote both of these throwbacks to primary status, but we’ve all been saying that for years, to no avail.
This Sunday’s game is scheduled to kick off at 4:25pm Eastern.
