The Denver Broncos have a lot of film study ahead of them if they want to find a way to get past the Seattle Seahawks top ranked defense. But while the next two weeks will be full of preparation, the team has made it’s first big decision for Super Bowl XLVIII — what jersey will they wear?
According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos will be wearing their orange jerseys on Super Bowl Sunday.
As Klis points out, the last two Super Bowls that the Broncos went to saw them wear their traditional home blue jerseys, but that’s a uniform they’ve only worn once this year. Since Peyton Manning came to town, the orange jerseys have become popular and that’s what Denver will be wearing in New Jersey.
This means that we can expect the Seahawks to likely wear their white uniforms, which may end up being an advantage. Should we get a blizzard in New Jersey like everyone is predicting, the white road uniforms for the Seahawks will allow them to possibly blend in with the elements, making them even more dangerous than they already are.
As good as Seattle’s defense has been this season, they may need all the help they can get against Peyton Manning and his orange-clad Bronco brethren.
