Packers ready for Seattle and their "12th Man"

The Green Bay Packers spoke after their big win on Sunday about the challenge of playing in Seattle at Centurylink Field.

The crowd, known as the 12th man, in Seattle is one of the loudest in the NFL.

The Seahawks' 12th Man has twice set the Guinness World Record for the loudest crowd noise at a sporting event.


The team averages 2.36 false starts a game when playing in CenturyLink Field.


Numbers show that the decibels of sound created at the stadium are just shy the equivalent of an aircraft carrier and rupturing an eardrum.


Jordy Nelson told reporters he thought the team handled the noise well in week 1 when the team played there and that because most of their plays are non-verbal they should be okay.


Josh Sitton said that it's clear the Seahawks feed off the crowd, which helps them create turnovers.


TJ Lang explained that sometimes it feels like 50 guys vs 70,000.


The team leaves for Seattle on Friday.
