DETROIT (FOX 2) - The Detroit Lions will unveil a bit of history when they play the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football.
Players will sport the franchises' throwback logo on their helmets when they take to Ford Field on Oct. 30 at they look to get back on track after last week's brutal loss in Baltimore.
The old-school logo features a lion in front of two bars colored blue and gray. It's the same Honolulu Blue that every Lions fan knows and loves, but with a twist.
Announced over the summer in June, the team was anticipating more interest in their season as they entered the season with high expectations. To match the excitement, they said they'll adorn the throwback helmets during two games: once against the Raiders and during the team's final home game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 18.
Its announcement was teased next to a vintage Ford Mustang.
Per NFL rules, the helmets can only be worn with alternate uniforms - which means expect the all-gray colors this Monday.
The Lions open as 8-point favorites against the Raiders.
