It’ll be a white Christmas — or at least a white Christmas Eve — this Sunday night in Denver, as the Broncos will wear their white alternate helmets when they host the Patriots.
The white lid, which is worn with Denver’s orange alternate uniform, was added to the team’s wardrobe this season. Prior to 2023, the orange uni was paired with a navy helmet featuring the team’s old “D” logo:
This will be the second and final time this season that the Broncos have worn this helmet. Its on-field debut came on Oct. 8, when Denver lost to the Jets, 31-21.
The Broncos have new uniforms in the works, so there’s a good chance that the white helmet could be paired with a more chromatically appropriate uniform for next season.
Sunday’s Pats/Broncos game is slated to kick off at 8:15pm Eastern.
