The Patriots are 2-0 when wearing their color rush outfits.

NFL: Houston Texans at New England Patriots Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Tomorrow, the New England Patriots will host the Atlanta Falcons for a prime time rematch of Super Bowl LI. Not only will the game feature two of the league's most talented teams – although the Patriots are not at full strength right now –, it will also see some of the better color rush uniforms in the NFL in action: New England will wear its all-blue setup against Atlanta.

The Patriots have worn color rush uniforms two times since the outfit's introduction during the 2015 season. The team first wore the blue-on-blue style during last year's week three victory over the Houston Texans. New England opted to go with their white on white jersey-pants-combination two weeks ago against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – a game that also ended with a Patriots win.

On Sunday, the team will try to improve its color rush record to 3-0; the Patriots will again use their all-blue combination. New England will also try to extend its winning streak against the Falcons: The defending world champions have won the past five games against Atlanta – all under Bill Belichick and Tom Brady – with the last loss coming in week 10 of the 1998 season.
