The NFL office announced on Monday afternoon that the New England Patriots will be the designated home team in Super Bowl XLVI and will wear their blue jerseys.

Each year, the NFL rotates between the AFC and NFC as home team. Since the Patriots wear their blue jerseys at home, the team has decided to wear blue in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5. In Super Bowl XLII against the New York Giants, the Pats wore their blue jerseys and were also the home team.

Personally, I believe it would be refreshing to see the throwback red jerseys for the big game in Indianapolis. I love their red throwbacks, but in this year’s playoffs, the blue jerseys seem to be working out just fine.

The team also announced they will travel to Indy on Sunday in preparation for the busy week ahead.
