Paul here, making a rare weekend appearance because there’s great news out of New England, where the Patriots are teasing the return of their “silver” pants (which are really grey, but whatever) for tomorrow’s Week 7 game against the Bills.
Whatever color you call them, these pants are soooooo much better with the blue jerseys than the team’s mono-blue combo.
This will be the first time this season that the Pats have worn the silver/grey pants with the blue jerseys, and only the second time overall since introducing their current uni set in 2020. The only previous time was for a game against the Bears last year (also in Week 7, interestingly). Here’s how that looked:
That game against the Bears was on a Monday night, so this will be the first time that this uni combo has been worn for a standard Sunday game. Here’s hoping it’s not the last!
(Big thanks to our own Anthony Emerson for passing along this news as soon as it broke.)
