It's been 10 years too long. But for the first time in a decade, the New England Patriots will bust out the fan-favorite "Pat Patriot" throwbacks.
The Pats will rock their clean threads on Sunday against the Lions via ESPN's Field Yates:
And the NFL world was loving it.
"Ayeee my grandad’s dayssssss," tweeted NFL Network's Kayla Burton.
"YES," another replied in all-caps.
"They're beautiful," another fan said.
"The Patriots need to go back to these uniforms/helmets full time," remarked John Sears. "They're perfect, and I'm not even a Pats fan."
"Oh my god these are pristine," a Patriots fan commented.
"I'm so fricken excited!!!!"
New England last donned the throwbacks in 2012, but famously wore them four times in 2009 to commemorate the 50th anniversary AFL; highlighted by the snow-covered, 59-0, curb-stomping they gave the Tennessee Titans when Tom Brady threw for 380 yards and six touchdowns.
