The New Orleans Saints have announced their Week 3 uniform combination, and it’s the winningest combo in their arsenal: white jerseys with matching white pants. The all-whites have been broken out eight times, with the Saints achieving a 6-2 record while wearing them. While the black-on-black uniforms have been worn for a team-leading 46 victories, these have a better winning percentage (.750).

Of course that doesn’t mean they should expect a win on Sunday. The New England Patriots are a tough out for anyone, even with a fresh-faced quarterback under center. The Saints have real flaws that need correcting, and Patriots coach Bill Belichick will do everything he can to frustrate them.

For the curious, here is where each Saints uniform combination ranks in win percentage since Sean Payton was hired to coach the team, way back in 2006:

  1. White jerseys, white pants: 6-2 (.750)

  2. “Color Rush” alternates: 8-3 (.727)

  3. “Black and Gold” throwbacks: 2-1 (.667)

  4. Black jerseys, gold pants: 23-14 (.622)

  5. White jerseys, black pants: 41-25 (.621)

  6. Black jerseys, black pants: 46-30 (.605)

  7. White jerseys, gold pants: 33-24 (.578)
