Because it's an even year (Super Bowl 50), as the AFC representative, the Denver Broncos are the home team and thus were given the prerogative of choosing whether to wear orange or white uniforms in the coming Super Bowl.
The Broncos have chosen to wear white.
And it's probably a good thing, if you're superstitious at all. In their seven previous Super Bowl appearances, the Broncos are 0-4 wearing orange, 1-0 wearing blue and 1-1 in white.
The Broncos were precluded from choosing to wear blue, because they are the team's current alternate uniform. Alternates cannot be worn in the Super Bowl.
The 2015 Broncos are hoping to go out in similar style. Peyton Manning will now hold the record, previously owned by Elway, as the oldest quarterback ever to start in the Super Bowl.
Manning will also become the first quarterback to take two different teams to two Super Bowl berths. Thus far, he's 1-2. With a great performance in Santa Clara, CA a little less than two weeks from now, he can even the scales.
