The New England Patriots are featured in Week 5’s Thursday Night Football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and we all know what that means.
It’s time for new Color Rush uniforms. As Christopher Price of the Boston Sports Journal reported, the team will wear all white this week against the Buccaneers.

But in a bit of an interesting turn of events, the Patriots will be pulling out a second Color Rush look during their game against the Atlanta Falcons on October 22, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss. This second uniform pairing will include an all-blue look, with blue pants and blue jerseys.

It’s unknown if the Patriots plan against the Falcons is to actually wear Color Rush jerseys (although it’s more than likely not). In turn, they’ll likely wear just their normal uniforms that feature regular blue jerseys with regular blue pants. Essentially, they could just be combining their two uniforms.
It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out and if any other teams opt to go this route in the near future. The Color Rush uniforms have seen mixed reviews come in from the fans. For some teams, they’re pretty popular, but for others, fans seem to really dislike them quite a bit.
