New England’s classic uniforms are back, for at least one game in 2022.
The Patriots announced today that they will wear their red jerseys and throwback helmets featuring the “Pat Patriot” logo, a Revolutionary War soldier snapping a football.
A year ago, the league announced a policy that gave teams the opportunity to use two different helmets starting in the 2022 season. That proved to be a popular move with fans who like alternate and throwback uniforms, and several teams plan to take advantage of the rule this season.

The system held, but barely, thanks to true patriots like AZ Speaker of the House Rusty Bowers. pic.twitter.com/GBqhPSQN5I
