The uniforms will replicate those worn by the 1985 team, and feature red jerseys, white pants and helmets with the "Pat Patriot" logo. The 1985 Patriots went 11-5 and won the AFC Championship, but lost to the Bears in Super Bowl XX, 46-10.
Globe reporter Shalise Manza Young snapped the photo at right of the helmets in the Patriots' locker room today.
According to a Patriots pregame information release, the Patriots are 7-3 in games they've worn throwback uniforms. They wore them twice last season and won both games -- vs. Minnesota Oct. 31 and at Detroit on Thanksgiving.
