Big one on Sunday at 4:05pm. Loud crowd, a good defense and a solid running game. Pats should have their hands full.

This should be a fun game - loud stadium, city the Pats don't play in much, and a good, hardnosed opponent.

Plus, we get to see Uncle Pete again.

Edelman, Gregory, Hoomanawanui and White not present at start of Patriots practice. Shells on fields behind Gillette Stadium.

Pat's O vs. Seahawks D is going to be fun to watch. That is far and away the loudest NFL stadium I've been to. The noise level has to have some effect on the hurry up.

Defensively for the Pats, going from Manning to Wilson will be a nice change.

Edit: I just realized that the Seahawks have to turn around and play in Candlestick, 3com, whatever it is on Thursday. That's a brutal week for them.

Seattle has the coolest stadium in the NFL, really want to catch a game there one day. Pats biggest problem is still their pass d, but thats not really Seattle's strength so as long as we take away Lynch's skittles and score 25 we should be alright.

Yup. Focus on Lynch and contain Wilson. If he comes out and throws for 300 yards and beats us, so be it. But there is really no reason why Marshawn Lynch should have a good game.

Yup, good test with hopefully a good outcome.

At the beginning of every season, people soil themselves with proclamations about strength of schedule. So much for the NFC West providing cannon fodder.

Fox has the doubleheader this week and their national game is 49ers @ Giants at 4PM. The only way for most of the country to get seahawks vs pats would be to play it at 10am PST. That's not happening.

Huh? Seahawks-Pats is a CBS game, and CBS has chosen to air the Jets game in the D.C. area, and thus I am pissed.

This should be a good "litmus test" game, given that the first one (Baltimore) was completely ruined. If I was ranking games, I'd have this as the fourth toughest game of the season, behind Baltimore, Houston, and San Fran.

CBS can't show a game opposite a Redskins' home game, though they would not want to compete against it anyways.

Amazing the lack of respect in the Boston media for this Seattle team. Guys like Felger, Smerlas and Tanguay thrashing Pete for some odd 15 year old grudge these white knights hold. Tanguay doesn't think Seattle has a loud stadium. Very little respect for Seattle's D. I think a lot of these people are going to have their eyes opened when this game is highly competitive deep into the 4th Quarter.

Yup and I'm not sure Green Bay is a top team anyways and needed a gift call to beat them. Green Bay can't run the football, the offensive stinks and Greg Jennings is consistently hurt this year.

Not at all surprising considering the sources. It's a win-win for Felger, who either will be proven right or have an occasion to go on a week long rant about how the Patriots suck.

One of the few NFL venues where Tom Brady has never won a football game (he's never played a game there since he was hurt in 2008 the last time the Pats played in Seattle, and they faced the Seahawks at Gillette Stadium in 2004.)

I believe Brady has also never won at Tampa (beat them in Wembley with Tampa the road team) and he's never won in New Orleans against the Saints (of course he won there in the Super Bowl).

Lastly, he's beaten the Cardinals at Sun Devils Stadium but has not played them in U of Phoenix Stadium and I don't want to think about what happened there in post season.

If my calculations are correct he's won a game at the remaining 28 current NFL venues. Considering the number of new Stadiums in the last 10 years as well as how infrequently you play in some of the NFC stadiums, that is pretty amazing.

Edit: the 2007 game in Dallas was at the old Cowboys Stadium so the new one in Dallas is another, so make it 27.

I don't think Brady has ever played at Candlestick - so, tough to have a win there...

Yeah, they've only played there five times since 1980, and once during the Brady era: 1980, 1989, 1995, 1998, 2008. And they'll play there next in 2016.

Yup, you're right. Same situation as Seattle (played there in '08 when Brady was injured).

So make it 26. Still impressive.

There is now a special weather statement up for the Seattle area with heavy rain moving in Saturday night through Monday. Also lots of wind. Could be a sloppy game.

(flying out for the game so not terribly thrilled that they're getting their first serious rain in weeks just when we arrive)

Crap. That could minimize the Pats' rather demonstrable advantage in the passing game.

And in Minneapolis, for some stupid reason. "Hey, let's watch two shitty teams that have no relation to our home-town team, or any geographic relevance to where we live, in favor of two top-10 teams that have some household names!"

Unfucking real.

EDIT: I realize that there's no way they'd air a game opposite a home-field Fox game, but still.

I said in another thread that, through week 6 or so of last year, I think I'd gotten all but one of the Pats games on local TV. This year, only the Sunday Night game against Bal.

Oh well.

I saw this, and it's a nice little advantage. This could be one of the very rare times where the Patriots could actually get "overlooked" by an opponent. This game is relatively meaningless for the Seahawks compared to that game, with major divisional implications. Brutal week indeed.

I wish this were the case, but not a chance. This game is all over the papers and air waves -- another big chance for the Hawks D to make a statement and vault into the national consciousness. The Clink will be ravenous bonkers.

...not terribly thrilled that they're getting their first serious rain in weeks...


Not weeks, months. After a 100 days of virtually unmitigated sunshine, the clouds have just returned and there will be downpours. This should be a significant Seahawk advantage.

Then they would be mirroring the Patriots' loss at home to the Cardinals with an away game at Baltimore looming the next week .... and that Arizona loss may well bite us in the ass before this is said and done

The retractable roof is next door, at Safeco. The Seahawks stadium is open over the field, but the stands are partially covered, at least on the sides.

If it rains -- and they're predicting a monsoon -- the field will be wet.
