PHILADELPHIA — If you noticed Chase Winovich’s hair was glowing a little brighter Sunday, it wasn’t just your imagination. The Patriots rookie defensive end bleached his hair before New England’s 17-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Winovich confirmed he bleached his hair Sunday but wouldn’t say why.

“It’s a secret,” Winovich said.

It appears the Patriots outside linebacker needed to fix up his roots a bit. Winovich had bleached his hair during his time at Michigan. He also dyed it orange for charity before the 2018 Outback Bowl.

Winovich registered two tackles and two quarterback hits Sunday against the Eagles. He’s had a stellar rookie season, recording 4.5 sacks in limited snaps.

He received some styling advice on social media.
