METAIRIE, La. – The Saints will once again wear their throwback uniforms.

Sunday's game against Tampa Bay will mark the last time this season they’ll don the mustard-yellow pants with the black jersey, sleeves trimmed in gold and white.

The NFL has a policy that teams can’t wear throwbacks during prime-time games and aren’t allowed to wear them once flex scheduling begins.

The Saints last wore the throwbacks from the 1967 season on Sept. 25 against Houston. In that game, New Orleans came back behind, scoring 23 fourth-quarter points to beat the Texans 40-33.

Prior to that, the Saints hadn’t worn throwbacks since Dec. 1, 2002, when they beat Tampa Bay 23-20.
