It's a simple reason: ''We've had Super Bowl success in our white uniforms,'' said John Elway, who was the Broncos' QB in back-to-back Super Bowl wins in the 1990s and is now their executive VP and general manager.
Denver wore its white uniforms in its last Super Bowl win, 34-19 over Atlanta 17 years ago.
The Broncos went 6-2 on the road in 2015, tying a franchise record for most victories away from home.
The AFC is designated the home team in even years.
The Broncos (14-4) face the Panthers (17-1) on Feb. 7 in their record-tying eighth Super Bowl appearance.
