As the 52nd Super Bowl home team, the New England Patriots have the right to pick jersey colors. In the last 13 sessions of the Super Bowl, 12 teams wearing white jerseys won the championship, including the Patriots in the previous Super Bowl, so it was a simple decision for them. When Tom Brady was seated, the Patriots wearing white jerseys scored 3-0 in the Super Bowl, but they only had 2 wins and 2 losses when they were wearing home blue jerseys. The decision of the Patriots forced the Hawks to wear their home green jersey. The last time the Hawks participated in the Super Bowl, they wore green jerseys to the Patriots wearing white Tommy McDonald Jersey.
