BBL,
I'm saying the 11/12 Rams game is white mesh.

I've added in the game-time temps for each game above. Based on those, I think its pretty safe to say...
10/22 @ Oakland (60 degrees) was likely white mesh.
9/17 at home vs Houston (69 degrees) was likely orange mesh.
12/17 at home vs New England (32 degrees) was likely orange durene.

Now, the question I think that needs to be asked...
With ample opportunities to wear white durene during the following year (1973), Denver did not and wore white mesh with temps dipping to the low 30s. Is there a chance that for some reason Denver decided to ditch the white durenes for both 1972 & 1973? I think if we turn up photos for their last 2 road games of 1972 (@ ATL - 42 degrees; @KC - 30 degrees), I'm betting that we'll find nothing but white mesh for these 2 games.

Waycross Journal-Herald 11-27-1972 - p7 of 14

Looking again at the TV number there is little white showing within the curves of the 2.
This looks to be white mesh again.

No white inside the 4s likely means mesh.
I'm saying white mesh.
