FOXBORO - A lot of people may not know the names of Chris Clemons, Red Bryant, Bruce Irvin, Brandon Mebane, Leroy Hill, Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright, Brandon Browner, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.
But you can bet the members of the Patriots' offensive unit are getting a crash course in them and the skills they'll bring to the table Sunday in Seattle (4:05 p.m.; Ch. 4, 12). They're the nucleus of the Seahawks' defense, the best in the NFL according to the league's rankings.
