Seahawks to wear white over blue in Super Bowl
By Brady Henderson
The Seahawks wore white jerseys and blue pants during their 23-0 win over the Giants at MetLife Stadium last month. That was the same uniform combination they donned during a win over Denver in the 2012 preseason.

Welcome to the buildup to the Super Bowl, where the extra week means no storyline goes uncovered – even sartorial selections. The Seahawks announced theirs Tuesday, choosing the white-over-blue look after the Broncos decided to go with the orange jerseys they've worn at home since the start of the 2012 season. As the home team – which alternates between conferences each Super Bowl – Denver had its choice of uniforms.
The Seahawks' website has a breakdown of how the team has fared in its various uniform combinations since debuting the Nike-designed threads before last season. They're 2-1 when wearing white over blue, losing last season at Detroit and winning in Atlanta this year before beating the Giants at MetLife Stadium.
The Broncos, as noted Tuesday, are 16-3 (including playoffs) when wearing the orange tops since last season. Teams wearing the darker jerseys are 1-8 in the last nine Super Bowls.
