Patriots uniforms: Ranking all 9 combinations in team history
The New England Patriots have been blessed with one of the best color schemes a professional sports team can ask for: red, white and blue (and silver, since the turn of the century). Some eras have made better use of these colors than others, however. Today, we’re going to rank the nine uniform combinations the Patriots have sported in franchise history.
There have been variations of each uniform, although most are minor enough for us to leave out. For example, just because the Patriots wore a patch on their jersey one year and or added a stripe another year doesn’t mean there are separate categories in this article. What you see listed are roughly the nine uniform combinations the Patriots have worn since their inception in 1960.
The three eras of Patriots uniforms are separated as such: Pat the Patriot (1960-1992), Oversized Flying Elvis (1993-1999) and the Modern Flying Elvis (2000-present).

Alright, let’s get to it.
