It's not often that something as simple as a change of pants can bring a fanbase together, but that's precisely what happened when the Patriots announced the team would be bringing back the silver pants for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Besides the red throwback uniforms, the Patriots uniform changes since Tom Brady left the team have been unanimously disliked, especially the home game blues. There was no real reason given for the changes to the colors, but it was speculated it was an effort to move on from the infamous combo deemed the "Brady era" of uniforms.

In that aspect, the change makes sense, given the quarterback helped get the team known for many things over the years, including their uniform. But it seems everyone is on board with the silver pants, so why not keep them around permanently instead of the constant tease of their return sporadically over the last three years?

However, there were some superstitious concerns after the announcement that players would be wearing them on Sunday. Looking back at recent games when they brought the silver out of the vault, the Patriots haven't fared well and actually lost more games than they won.

Because this matchup with the Bills was big, it seemed like a mistake to add even more for the team to overcome.

But that quickly changed as soon as the offense took the field, marching down to get points on the board on their first drive. The rest of the game continued that way, with some bumps in the road on the way, but they did enough to win the game, and Mac Jones especially looked quite impressive throughout.

The uniform change also caught the attention of some New England legends, including Julian Edelman, who proclaimed the silver pants become the standard for the rest of the season.

It's unlikely anyone will take issue with that, but it probably won't happen, even though it definitely should.
