1939 NFL Game in Color Behold ten minutes of play from a 1939 NFL game in stunning color! The remarkable clarity makes the silent footage look like it was shot last week instead of nearly 80 years ago. It's from a September 24, 1939 game between the Brooklyn Dodgers (yes, there was an NFL team by that name) and the Detroit Lions. The game was played at University of Detroit Stadium and drew an excellent crowd. Despite the score being 0-0 at halftime, Detroit (in blue) won 27-7. A few things to notice: No faceguards on the players. (Brooklyn's kicker has no helmet.) There are a double set of goalposts because the NFL's posts were situated on the goal line in 1939; while the NCAA's were on the end line. The NFL used a thicker ball in that era. You have to love the referees' all-white outfits.
