The Patriots are coming off a crushing last-second loss to the Panthers, and they're already headed down to Tampa Bay on a short week to take on the Buccaneers. The consolation? New England will be breaking out brand-new Color Rush threads for the occasion. As the team's official Twitter account announced, the Pats will wear all-white duds in Tampa and will return to last season's all-blue Color Rush look for Week 7 against the Falcons on Sunday Night Football.

Assuming Tampa Bay wears last season's all-red Color Rush template once again, Thursday night's game will look a lot like last year's Atlanta-Tampa Thursday night matchup (the Falcons wore all white as well). As PatsPulpit pointed out, New England hasn't regularly worn an all-white look since 1993, when the franchise first adopted the now-ubiquitous "Flying Elvis" logo.
