The Denver Broncos will bust out their blue jerseys when they play host to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football this week.
The blue jerseys are the team’s official alternate uniforms, and they will pair them with white pants, the team announced Wednesday. While that won’t mean much to some people, there are plenty who can’t get enough of the different jersey combinations.
Specifically, the blue-on-white look is reminiscent of the 1997 Broncos team that won Super Bowl XXXII while wearing the color combination. The team also released a bunch of stats about the team’s performance while wearing different colors of jerseys, and if that’s your thing then read on.
The Broncos are 69-27 all-time while at home wearing blue pants with white jerseys. Since they named the blue jerseys their official alternates, they are 4-1, including 3-1 when pairing the jerseys with blue pants. But that won’t be the case for Monday’s game.
This is all very fascinating, of course. But it gets even better. With road and neutral-site games, the Broncos are 75-31 in blue-on-white. Clearly, this means they’ll trounce the Texans, who will probably be wearing some kind of uniform or other. They haven’t issued a press release about their uniforms, so they’re apparently not as important.
In stats that actually matter, the Broncos and Texans are both 4-2 on the season, though both of Houston’s losses have come on the road. The Broncos are 2-1 at home this season and are looking to rebound from a recent losing skid.
