FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady and the New England Patriots offense won't be facing just 11 members of the Seattle Seahawks defense Sunday.
It will be closer to 70,000.
The Patriots all week have been pumping loud music through the speakers during practices to prepare for the hostile and rowdy Seattle fans set to pack into CenturyLink Field, one of three current NFL stadiums Brady has never played in.
Nonetheless, the quarterback knows exactly what to expect, and precisely what he wants to do.
"There probably aren't many that I haven't played in at this point. But this will be fun," Brady said. "It's always nice when you take 53 guys on the road and you say, 'This is all we've got and this is all we need and this is what we have to do.' And see 70,000 fans, if you can keep them quiet or turn them on their own team.
"I think that's an exciting part for road teams, is to see if you can get them booing their own players."
