The NFL’s 2023 retro renaissance rolls on tomorrow night, as the Browns will wear their 1946 throwbacks while hosting the Jets.
The Browns introduced the 1946 throwback in 2021, as part of their 75th-anniversary celebration. It was worn three times that year (including twice on the road, oddly), but with an orange helmet, because the one-shell rule was still in effect. The throwback was shelved in 2022 and revived this year with an era-appropriate white helmet:
This will be the third and final time this year that the Browns have worn the new white-helmeted version, following a 26-22 loss to the Steelers on Sept. 18 and a 19-17 victory over the 49ers on Oct. 15.
