Patriots' No. 1 offense set to test Seattle's D

(Continued)

“It just really challenges you mentally in getting lined up. When you watch tape, a lot of their explosive plays come from guys not having a clue on what they’re doing out there, like busted assignments,” Seattle safety Earl Thomas said. “We just try to eliminate that and make sure that we’re still playing fast even though they’re going up-tempo on us.”

Seattle has not allowed a touchdown to an opposing offense since the fourth quarter of its Week 3 win over Green Bay, a span of 128 minutes. It will be a challenge to keep the streak going against Brady, but the Seahawks would like nothing more than to make his first trip to Seattle forgettable.

“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,” Brady said. “I think that’s an exciting part for road teams, is to see if you can get them booing their own players.”
