Seattle Seahawks to wear ‘home’ jerseys at Super Bowl XLIX


Super Bowl XLIX will be on Feb. 1 and features the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots.

The game will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., but the Seahawks will be deemed the “home” team in this contest.

The Seahawks official Twitter accounted tweeted the news on Thursday night:

Seattle hasn’t lost wearing their all-blue uniforms since Oct. 12 when they hosted the Dallas Cowboys.

The only other time they lost wearing those uniforms was a Week 2 loss to the San Diego Chargers.

In last season’s Super Bowl, the Seahawks put a 43-8 whooping on the Denver Broncos as the “away” team when they wore their white jerseys and blue pants.

But this time, it will be the AFC team playing as the away team.

The last time the Seahawks played the Patriots was on Oct. 14, 2012 at CenturyLink Field.

Seattle found themselves down 23-10 in the fourth quarter of that game but scored two late touchdowns to earn the 24-23 victory.

It was a key win that put Seattle on the map for the first time since Russell Wilson had taken over as quarterback and Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas had taken over as leaders on defense.

You could look back on that game and say that’s when Seattle gained the confidence to turn into the powerhouse they are now.

The Patriots are considered favorites right now in the Super Bowl, but that could change in the upcoming days.

One thing we know for sure is that Seattle will be wearing their all-blue uniforms and the Patriots will be sporting their white jerseys with blue pants.

Kickoff for Super Bowl XLIX is set to be at 3:30 p.m. PT.
