Super Bowl 52 is on the way, and both the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles have reason to be confident in the uniforms they’ll wear to the big game.
Serving as the official “home” team for February 4’s Minneapolis showdown, New England announced that they have elected to wear their “away” white jerseys against the Eagles.
New England is undefeated when wearing white under Bill Belichick in Super Bowls, and the team will be looking for a fourth straight Lombardi Trophy in those jerseys.
Twelve of the last 13 Super Bowl champions have also worn white.
However, the Eagles shouldn’t feel too shabby about donning their signature green.
Philadelphia has won all but one of its 2017 games in home colours, going 10-and-1, with the lone loss coming in a meaningless regular-season finale against the Dallas Cowboys.
Both of the Eagles’ playoff victories this season have also come with the team in green jerseys.
However, NFL analyst, Jerome Jarrett, says statistics show that New England will start favourites.
