Patriots move practice indoors
Move inside could be to simulate noisy conditions they'll face Sunday
FOXBOROUGH -- As they prepare for what figures to be a noisy environment Sunday night, the Patriots are practicing inside the Dana-Farber Field House on Friday.
Working in a closed environment, where music can blare, could be designed to help offensive linemen assimilate to what they are likely to face in Lucas Oil Stadium. The Patriots lead the NFL in shotgun snaps, and if they are to use the 'gun a majority of the time Sunday, they will have to operate on a silent snap count.
