Patriots, Cardinals To Create New Uniform Matchup On Monday Night Football

Monday night’s game between the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals (8:15 p.m. on ESPN) will feature a never-before-seen uniform matchup thanks in large part to a recent redesign by the former.

While this marks the Patriots’ eighth all-time trip to the Valley of the Sun, including a 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, it’s actually their first since unveiling the current uniform set in 2020.

The overall combination remains the same as that victory, as well as their 23-21 win over the Cardinals on Sunday Night Football in 2016, with silver helmets over white jerseys and blue pants. 

However, the current uniforms feature UCLA stripes on the shoulders of the jersey and a traditional striping pattern down the sides of the pants rather than the more modern look associated with their six Super Bowl victories.

Arizona, meanwhile, will counter with its standard white helmets over cardinal home jerseys and pants. The Cardinals have never worn this combination against New England, donning white pants in their only other matchup in Arizona (2016) since unveiling their current set in 2005.

The Cardinals are 1-1 in this combination this season, including a 44-21 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 11 and a 26-16 win at the Carolina Panthers on Oct. 2.

The Patriots, on the other hand, are 5-2 all-time in Arizona, including 2-0 at State Farm Stadium, and 3-2 at Sun Devil Stadium, where the Cardinals played from 1988-2005. The overall record and record at State Farm Stadium reflect the aforementioned Super Bowl, of course.
