The Super Bowl Team Wearing White Unis has Won 17 of the last 23 Super Bowls… With a Catch

The Chiefs will be wearing white next Sunday when they square off against the Eagles for all the marbles. And 17 of the past 23 Super Bowls have been won by the team wearing white unis in the game.

So the Chiefs have this in the bag, right?

Well, not exactly…

You will see why shortly.

Let’s take a look at the past Super Bowl jersey matchups.

Super Bowl XXXIV; Rams 23, Titans 16

Super Bowl XXXV; Ravens 34, Giants 7

Super Bowl XXXVI; Patriots 20, Rams 17 (Dark team won)

Super Bowl XXXVII; Bucs 48, Raiders 21 (Dark team won)

Super Bowl XXXVIII; Patriots 32, Panthers 29 (Dark team won)

Super Bowl XXXIX; Patriots 24, Eagles 21

Super Bowl XL; Steelers 21, Seahawks 10

Super Bowl XLI; Colts 29, Bears 17

Super Bowl XLII; Giants 17, Patriots 14

Super Bowl XLIII; Steelers 27, Cardinals 23

Super Bowl XLIV; Saints 31, Colts 17

Super Bowl XLV; Packers 31, Steelers 25 (Dark team won)

Super Bowl XLVI; Giants 21, Patriots 17

Super Bowl XLVII; Ravens 34, 49ers 31

Super Bowl XLVIII; Seahawks 43, Broncos 8

Super Bowl XLIX; Patriots 28, Seahawks 24

Super Bowl 50; Broncos 24, Panthers 10

Super Bowl LI; Patriots 34, Falcons 28 (OT)

Super Bowl LII; Eagles 41, Patriots 33 (Dark team won)

Super Bowl LIII; Patriots 13, Rams 3

Super Bowl LIV; Chiefs 31, 49ers 20 (Dark team won)

Super Bowl LV; Bucs 31, Chiefs 9

Super Bowl LVI; Rams 23, Bengals 20

There you have it. Of the 23 Super Bowls since 2000, the team wearing white has won 17 times, the team wearing dark has won 6 times.

Seems to be a trend here.

And the Chiefs will be wearing white on Sunday, so you’d think they’ll have history on their side, right?

Well, it turns out one of the few teams to win the Super Bowl while wearing darks was the Eagles in 2017. And then, two years later, the Chiefs bucked the trend and won while wearing their darks.

The others were the Patriots in 2001, the Bucs in 2002, the Patriots in 2003, and the Packers in 2010.

Philly and Kansas City seem to be the two teams that are immune to the dark jersey curse.
