Super Bowl 2021 uniforms: What color jerseys are the Chiefs, Buccaneers wearing today? Why white is important at home for Bucs

0 Comments

Even though Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will make history Sunday as the first team to play at home in the Super Bowl, they won’t be doing it in their home uniforms. Instead, the Buccaneers will wear their white jerseys and pewter pants at Super Bowl LV, while the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs will wear red jerseys and white pants, the same outfits they wore last season when defeating the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

The Buccaneers – the designated home team by virtue of being the NFC representative – opted to wear white, which they wore when they defeated the Saints in the Divisional Round and the Packers in the NFC Championship, over their traditional home jerseys.

Over the course of the first 54 Super Bowls, the team wearing white jerseys is 34-20 (.630%), including 13-3 in the last 16 Super Bowls (see chart below). That streak started during the 2004 season, when Tom Brady’s Patriots defeated Andy Reid’s Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX. Brady – who is playing in his 10th Super Bowl – is 4-1 when wearing white jerseys versus 2-2 when wearing blue.
