Here Are The Throwback Jerseys And Helmets The Patriots Will Wear On Sunday

According to the team’s official Twitter account (you can tell it’s real because it’s called @realpatriots), When the New England Patriots take the field at Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon to take on the hated New York Jets, these are the uniforms they will be sporting. Spiffy. The coaches will also be donning throwback shirts — but as you can see, they are short-sleeved, so there will be no need for Bill Belichick to cut them. I wonder if that bums him out. Oh well.

Man, those throwback uniforms sure do take me back to the good old days. You know, way back to the 1992 season when the Patriots last wore these uniforms regularly, which leads me to wonder: will the Pats fans even know who the Patriots are when they come out of the tunnel for pregame introductions? 1992 was an awful long time ago — way before their first Super Bowl victory in 2001. I bet some Patriots fans didn’t even know they had an NFL team before that.
