FOXBOROUGH -- If there's one Patriot who knows what it's like to play in Seattle, it's wide receiver Deion Branch.
Branch played for the Seahawks from 2006 to 2010 after being traded by the Patriots, before returning four weeks into the 2010 season on another trade. For Branch, there is no underestimating what kind of environment to expect at CenturyLink Field.
"It's by far the loudest stadium [in the NFL]," Branch said. "And it can get louder if things go bad for us on the offensive side of the ball."
The key, Branch said, is for the Patriots to do their job on offense, and quiet the crowd.
"We can control that portion of the game," Branch said.
