Here's Bill Belichick's record by hoodie color and sleeve length

Sunday's game between the Patriots and the Broncos is the biggest game of the week. Both teams are playing well, so it's difficult to tell who will win. There may be one overlooked place to turn for predictions, though: Bill Belichick's wardrobe. 

A Patriots blog called "Pats Propoganda" meticulously tracks Belichick's sartorial choices in a Google spreadsheet called the "Belichick Hoodie History." While it's far from comprehensive, it does give an idea of how successful the Pats are, based on Belichick's attire.

When Belichick wears grey hoodie with the sleeves intact, the Patriots are nearly unstoppable, at 16-2. The red hoodie (3-3) is a bad omen, as is the blue hoodie with the sleeves cut off (7-5).

Sunday's forecast in Foxboro calls for rain, with a high of 43 degrees.
