07:03 AM ET 06.23 | Steve Grogan ... Andre Tipett ... Mosi Tatupu ... The Patriots have officially ditched the silver alternate jerseys (that kind of just looked like dirty whites), and will usher in throwbacks to replace them on a permanent basis. It will be a bit different than last year's unis, worn in celebration of the AFL's 50 anniversary. These are styled after the 1985 AFC Championship team. And the Patriots' official Twitter feed passed on word this morning that the team will break them out for the team's Oct. 31 game against the Vikings. Minnesota, everyone's betting, will be quarterbacked by Brett Favre, who was in the league when the Patriots actually wore those uniforms for real. No kidding. And not just for one year.
