Broncos choose to wear white road uniforms in Super Bowl

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos have chosen to wear their white road uniforms in Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers.

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.
