The Patriots are 3–1 in the Super Bowl when wearing white. Just saying.
For the second year in a row, the Patriots will be wearing white uniforms in the Super Bowl.
The Patriots are the home team—the home/away designation alternates between the AFC and NFC every year—and thus had the option to choose which jerseys to wear against the Eagles in Minnesota. They announced Tuesday that they’re going with the road whites.
The Patriots are 3–1 when wearing white in the Super Bowl, according to ESPN. The lone loss came in Super Bowl XXXI against the Packers under Bill Parcells. Last year’s dramatic comeback against the Falcons also came while wearing white after Atlanta went with its red jerseys as the home team.
The Eagles haven’t officially announced which jerseys they will wear but it figures to be the typical dark green. Philadelphia rarely wears its black alternates and no team has worn an alternate jersey in the Super Bowl.
