ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Ralph Wilson Stadium was loud for the Buffalo Bills' season-opening win over the Indianapolis Colts, but Rex Ryan feels that it could get even louder when the New England Patriots come to town this Sunday.

"I'll say this: I have a funny feeling it's going to be as loud as any game I've even been [at] in my life," Ryan said. "That's how I feel. Because again: we've been challenged."

As is typical, the Bills blared music at the start of their practice Wednesday to simulate crowd noise for the defense.

"If last week was any indication, we don't need to sell seats," Ryan said. "Our fans stand all the time anyway. So it's like, I'm looking back and like, 'Golly, take a little breather, if you want.' But man, forget it. Our fans are into it.

"I have a feeling they'll be into this one."

Will the fans ever sit down again?

"I have no idea!" Ryan said. "Honestly I couldn't tell. I was blown away by it. I was shocked by it. And oh my goodness. Maybe if you got some youngsters behind you, maybe you want to sit down and give them an opportunity to watch the game or something -- we want to build those young Bills fans too -- but I don't know, it's like, that was crazy. I've never seen that before."
