Additional photos from the 10/9/38 game hosting Detroit show that Green Bay started the game in their myrtle-green jerseys with yellow shoulders.However, later in the game when they scored their only touchdown, the player is wearing their plain green jerseys with no yellow shoulders visible. No mention of a change is referenced in any articles, however, the photographic evidence is convincing especially with Don Hutson (#14 at the far left of the 1st photo) still wearing his 2-stripe socks but with a plain, one-color jersey.
In a Preseason game against "Ken Strong's All-Stars," the Dodgers allowed their opponents to use Dodger uniforms. In a game to sponsor the local New Brunswick (NJ) "Negro Servicemen's Center Fund," the Dodgers wore their own white helmets with red trim, their own red jerseys, and (in an unusual move) their own white pants with blue butt-stripes (typically worn only with their blue jerseys). Their opponents, dubbed Ken Strong's All-Stars, wore the blue Dodger jerseys along with the Dodgers' grey pants patterned with red butt-stripes. Their helmets were blue with white 'spider-stripes.' Presumably, this criss-crossing of uniforms was done to put both teams into red, white and blue patriotic themed uniforms.

Courtesy of Leo Strawn who noticed that the Bears wore a mix of grey and black/navy facemasks in the 1956 NFL Championship Game in New York. Further research shows this was a pattern throughout 1956 up through 1959. In 1960, the Bears would switch to the predominant use of the so-called white "Bears' bar" facemasks for the entire decade of the 1960s.
The "Week 2" New York Yanks / Detroit Lions game was moved from Yankee Stadium to Briggs Stadium in Detroit. The Yanks were allowed to play as the 'home'team despite the location change. Newspaper article from the Traverse City Record-Eagle states that the Lions would be wearing red uniforms as opposed to their normal blue. Adding the 1951 Lions' red combo.
