We already know the Super Bowl match-up. It's the Broncos and Seahawks in one of the most-anticipated pairings we've head in quite some time. But the important question is what jerseys will they be wearing?

We know the answer for Denver: they're rocking orange jerseys

That's been the home color for Denver most of this season and they're 9-1 now while wearing that color, having lost only to the Chargers at home on Thursday night. The AFC is the "home" team this year, so the Broncos get first choice.

Denver switched to orange as their home jerseys before the 2012 season, the same time they signed Peyton Manning. Since then, the Broncos are 14-2 at home. Needless to say they like the orange.

However, the Broncos haven't fared well in the Super Bowl while wearing orange jerseys. They're 0-3 in Super Bowls while wearing orange, having lost to the Cowboys in Super Bowl XII, the Redskins in Super Bowl XXII and the 49ers in Super Bowl XXIV.

Denver's previous two Super Bowl wins came while wearing blue (against the Packers in Super Bowl XXXII) and white (against the Falcons in Super Bowl XXXIII). 

We'll see if they can buck the trend.
