Last weekend, the Patriots surprisingly wore silver pants with their blue home jersey in a big win over the Buffalo Bills. They wore the throwback red and white combination in week two vs. the Miami Dolphins. In all, the Patriots have sported four different uniform combinations this year. So which one is the best?

Before we get into the debate, let’s break it down. The standard blue on blue became the official new look in 2020. This look was featured as an alternate during Tom Brady’s last season. At this time, the blue on blue was considered the team’s “color rush” set. The new Nike uniform kit style often calls for the pants to be the same color as the jersey. In addition, many teams opt for one pant color in both the home and away uniform set. This holds true for the current Patriots look, where the blue pants are also worn with the road white jersey.

The Pat Patriot Look

This is always a fan favorite. The throwback uniform set features the red and white combination. “The current throwback is modeled after the uniform that the team wore from 1984 through 1992,” the Patriots explained. Though the team lost to the Dolphins 24-17 during their first game wearing the throwbacks, they will wear this combination again during their week 13 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

On Saturday, October 21, the Patriots first teased the return of the silver pants at home in a social media post. At this time, most fans were unaware the classic silver would worn by the team the very next day. For those who believe in superstitions, perhaps the silver was a good luck charm. Not many people picked the Patriots to defeat the Bills in this AFC East battle.

“This will be the first time this season that the Pats have worn the silver/grey pants with the blue jerseys, and only the second time overall since introducing their current uni set in 2020,” Uni-Watch explained.

With ten games remaining, it’s safe to assume we will see the standard home and away look for each game except the Chargers matchup. So, let’s rank which of the fours uniform options the Patriots have worn in 2023 is the best overall look.

  • #4 Blue on Blue

    Not many teams have turned their previous “color rush” uniform into their permanent home look. While, it’s a nice coincidence this style represented a new chapter in the team’s history, with the entrance of Mac Jones replacing Tom Brady, there’s nothing striking here. It’s certainly modern and includes Nike’s latest breathable and stretch technology, however. The Patriots did win their first game of the season in this combination on the road vs. the Jets in week three.

  • #3 White Jersey, Blue Pants

    Believe it or not, we are seven games deep into the season and the Patriots have only worn this combination once. This was the set at Las Vegas on October 15, when the team lost to the Raiders 21-17. Nonetheless, this is not a bad away look. The strong red outlines really stand out and accent the numerals. The white on blue also is similar to the 2000-2019 dynasty road whites.

  • #2 Red and White, Patriot Pat Throwback

    The only reason this legendary uniform style is not number one is because we know it’s just that, the throwback. As you have already seen with the Eagles wearing their Kelly Green, and the Bucs wearing their Creamsicles, the NFL has made a strong initiative for teams to throw these uniforms into the mix as a special edition, up to twice per season. So this sharp-looking red and white with “Patriot Pat” on the helmet will remain in that “special” category.

  • #1 Blue and Silver

    This best represents the six-time Super Bowl champion Patriots. In fact, the team wore this color combination in their Super Bowl victories over the Rams and Panthers (white on blue was worn for the other four). Last week, there was much feedback on the decision to wear the silver pants at home, where fans were in favor of this look coming back for good. It’s classic with a slight modern upgrade. There has not been any mention of whether or not the silver pants will be back again this season. With the way the game vs. the Bills went, it should be strongly considered.
