Patriots readying for tough test against Seahawks' defense (The Associated Press)

The Seahawks’ defense gave Tom Brady and the Patriots all they could handle during their Super Bowl matchup in 2015. New England won’t be facing a completely healthy Seahawks unit Sunday, but the Patriots will be matching up with the highest-ranked defense they’ve seen since Brady’s return. ”I’ve told you guys a lot over the years, some of the best defenses I’ve played in my whole career,” Brady said to reporters.
