And FWIW, a while back Uni Watch catalogued every instance of white at home from the league's early days through 2010:

Seattle needs to get on the ball and wear white at home at least once.

Why?

 

I hate their monotome navy, but why must they wear white at home at least once.

 

Fake edit - I made up a word. Monochrome and monotone jammed together, as that's my description of what all one color yields.

There was a time where warm-weather teams forcing opponents to wear dark colors in the sun actually made a difference, but beyond that, the choice was likely simple aesthetics - or forcing the Cowboys to wear blue... always force the Cowboys to wear blue.

Going by that link Gothamite posted, they're the only team that hasn't done it yet.  That's all.

Giants in 1980 for all home games.

Eagles in 1995 for all home games--along with 1971, 1973, and some occasions in the 80s when they weren't necessarily playing the Cowboys.

Falcons in both 1986 and 1989 for all home games.

Buccaneers in 1996 for all home games.

Panthers in several post-season games in Charlotte

Saints in 1981 and 1982--the first two seasons Bum Phillips was coach (considering he had the Oilers wear Columbia Blue in the Astrodome).

Saints in the Sean Payton era for the first half of the regular season and at least one preseason game.

Bills in the first half of the 80s

Jets for one game in the 70s at Shea per season.

Jets in the Meadowlands the last half of the 80s.

Dolphins for prime-time games in 1977 and 1996.

Patriots in the mid-80s.

Bengals in 1970 and 1971.

Oilers for random home games in 1973 and 1974.

Oilers after Bum Philllips left until midway through the 1984 season.

Titans for all but one game in 2014.

Colts in 1980 in Baltimore

Colts for the first pre-season game in Lucas Oil Stadium since moving there.

Chiefs in 1980.

Chargers during the #AirCoryell era, and again in 1991.

Rams the first few years in Anaheim whenever they played an AFC team and/or a prime time game.

Rams for all but 3 games in 1978.

Rams in 1982 and 1993.

Rams in St Louis (few and far between at that)

49ers for preseason games at Candlestick, when the weather that froze many baseball fans during that era would not really justify WAH.

49ers in 1976, and again during the first couple of home dates when Bill Walsh started coaching.

You forgot to add the Cowboys from 1964 to the present.  That I will NEVER understand!!!

And don't forget the Falcons selected home games from the Reeves era from 1997-03, and they were now an indoor football team.

I excluded any past or present NFC East team simply because of the Cowboys' pre-eminence with WAH since 1964. And I excluded the Falcons in the Reeves era due to him being in the Landry #CoachingTree.
