They may be the “home” team in Super Bowl LII, but the Patriots Super Bowl 52 jerseys will be the same as the last two. The Pats will once again wear their road white jerseys against the Phialdelphia Eagles, according to a team spokesman.
New England is 3-1 in Super Bowls while wearing white jerseys. They also beat the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX while wearing the road whites. Their other two wins, of course, came in their last two appearances, in Super Bowl XLIX over the Seahawks and Super Bowl LI over the Falcons. They wore blue jerseys in their other two Super Bowl wins.
Their lone defeat in white came at the hands of Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers back in Super Bowl XXXI in the 1996 season.
Patriots Super Bowl 52 Jerseys: Are You Superstitious?
The team wearing white has won 12 of the last 13 Super Bowls. So if you believe in the supernatural, then you must be happy that the Pats are sticking with the road jerseys in Super Bowl LII despite technically being the home team.
Head coach Bill Belichick would almost certainly shoot down any question about the jerseys and whether they mean anything. Because ultimately, they mean nothing – it’s the players, not their jerseys, that will decide the game.
