The 49ers will wear their home jerseys in Super Bowl XLVII. We take a look at the always classic jersey.

If this isn't the awesomest jersey, I don't know what is. The 49ers announced on their Facebook page that they will be sporting the cherry red home jerseys for Super Bowl XLVII next week. The photo on their page showed the jersey with the stitched-in Super Bowl patch, as seen above. Not too shabby.

As Matt Maiocco noted, the 49ers have sported their home jerseys in three of their five Super Bowl victories. I like referring to them simply as their Super Bowl victories, and not just "their Super Bowl appearances." I'd certainly hope they can keep that as victories and not just "appearances" next week.

Speaking of random stats, here are some win/loss records based on certain occurrences. These results do not mean scoring 20 or more points or rushing for 100 yards or more guarantees a win, but some of the things that have happened that have been a key part of their 5-0 Super Bowl record.
