    So, we have to see Seattle twice? Interesting.

    I assume that the reason for this is that Seattle is a west coast team and perhaps both teams will be flying to China directly after the game? Perhaps the NFL is handling chartering the aircraft and making lodging arrangements so it made sense for the teams to fly out together? Just my 2 cents on this one.

    So will The Pats and the SeaBags be the first teams ever to play each other twice in a preseason? ( let alone consecutive weeks, that's a first)

    PD.

    I like it, thank you.

    The travel arrangements sound as good as they could be ...
    given that you span the Pacific twice.
    But Seattle is the closest American portal to China.

    One wonders how the camaraderie between Seattle's renegade WR and his ex-teammates
    will play out on the long flights, and with the roundeyes sticking pretty close together in Asia
    - as most tend to do.

    Mostly, i am glad of TWO chances to scrimmage against another quality team
    ... without leaking any deep info to a conference opponent.

    And since it's preseason... Deion Branch can make faces from the sidelines (and all the clueless media types can call it the Sea./NE blood feud to the death bowl blah blah blah...)

    I wonder if the Pats will even send some players like Brady to China. I could see them sending him to Seattle but sending alot of the big stars back to NE when the team is on China.

    One thing for sure, I see alot of guys you never heard of playing in the China game.

    Don't plan on starters getting any substantial time.

    I hope you are right but the NFL will flip if the starting lineup does not make that trip. Brady and Alexander will have to be there.
