It's not the Georgia Dome, but the Atlanta Falcons will be playing at home in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots Sunday, Feb. 5, in Houston.

The NFL alternates between the AFC and NFC every year to determine who is the home team. Last year, the AFC champion Denver Broncos were the home team when they defeated the Carolina Panthers.

What does this mean for Atlanta?

As the home team it chooses whether to wear white or colored jerseys.

So what color should they wear? Before you vote in our poll consider this:

The team in white has won 11 of the past 12 Super Bowls. Overall, the team in white has a winning record of 32-18 in the big game.
