As the home team in this year’s Super Bowl, the Broncos get to choose which uniform to wear. The team announced today that they will be going with the road whites for the game.
The Broncos made a surprise move to some on Monday night when they announced their uniforms for Super Bowl 50. With this being an even number Super Bowl, the AFC team gets to choose what jersey color to wear.
Instead of the normal home orange jerseys, the Broncos have decided to switch it up and go with the road whites for this year’s Super Bowl.
This is not the first time that the home team in the Super Bowl has gone with the white uniforms. Back in Super Bowl XL, the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to wear their white jerseys.
With this, the Panthers will be required to wear their home black jerseys for the first time this postseason.
If you are superstitious, then you will like this. In the Broncos’ seven Super Bowl appearances, they went 0-4 in their orange jerseys and 1-1 in the road white uniforms. They are currently undefeated in the blue uniforms at 1-0.
Also something worth noting is that the road whites were the last jerseys that John Elway wore when he played in his final game. Could we be seeing the same with Peyton Manning?
I am okay with the Broncos going with the road white uniforms. While the team has been known for its United in Orange motto, the white will give them a nice change of pace.
Can I hear a United in White? Either way, the Broncos are looking to win their third Super Bowl in franchise history. And it will take every Bronco player to do that. No matter if they wear orange, blue, or white this is still the Denver Broncos.
