GREEN BAY – The Packers will again turn back the clock in 2017 when they don their historic third jersey Nov. 19 against the Baltimore Ravens.
The jersey, unveiled in 2015, is a re-creation of the team’s 1937-48 uniform, meant to pay tribute to a special time in Packers history in which the club won two of its record 13 NFL championships.
Those also were the last 13 seasons of Curly Lambeau’s legendary reign in Green Bay. The two championships gave him an NFL-record six, later tied by George Halas. In 1947, Lambeau became the first coach in NFL history to win 200 regular-season games.
The jerseys will again be navy blue and gold, the Packers’ predominant color scheme over their first three decades, and include the distinctive gold yoke across the shoulders.
The Packers previously wore the uniforms in 2015 against the San Diego Chargers and last year against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Packers’ previous third jersey (worn during the 2010-11, 2013-14 seasons) also was a historic re-creation, celebrating the team’s 1929 season, the year of Green Bay’s first world championship.
