Denver Broncos fans, there is still time to purchase that orange Peyton Manning jersey.
Seattle Seahawks fans, get those white Russell Wilson jerseys ready.

Those will be the jersey colors for both teams during Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Seahawks will wear their road white jerseys and blue pants, a rare combination for Seattle, while Denver will wear its home orange jerseys at MetLife Stadium on February 2. Both teams have excelled in their respective colors.

According to the Broncos’ website, Denver has a 14-2 regular season record (2-1 in the postseason) since switching back to the orange jerseys prior to the 2012 season. Denver has worn orange jerseys in three Super Bowls - and lost each time.

Dallas defeated Denver in Super Bowl XII, Washington was victorious in Super Bowl XXII, while San Francisco won Super Bowl XXIV.

Seattle previously adorned the white and blue uniforms during a 23-0 victory against the New York Giants in Week 15 at Metlife Stadium. The Seahawks hope to duplicate that success against Denver.

Overall, Seattle is 2-1 in the white and blue uniforms, according to the team's website.

Broncos and Seahawks fans, dress accordingly.
