Regardless of the outcome of the NFC Championship game, the Patriots already have a leg up on the winner.

According to NFL PR Director Brian McCarthy, the Patriots will be the home team in the Super Bowl, and will have the option of wearing either their dark or white jersey when they take the field against the winner of the NFC.

The Patriots have worn their blue jerseys during Super Bowl XXXVI and also in XXXVIII and XLII.  The last time they wore white was back in Super Bowl XXXIX.
