Prep for crowd noise coming

The Bills are preparing for their first road game of the season on Sunday when they travel to Met Life Stadium to face the Jets. Crowd noise will be the new element for the offense this weekend. Head coach Doug Marrone has a plan to deal with that.

Most NFL coaches pump artificial crowd noise onto the practice field during the week.

“We typically do that on Fridays,” said Marrone following Thursday’s practice.

EJ Manuel knows they have to be prepared to communicate with hand signals if necessary.

“I’ve played in stadiums where there are 95-thousand people or 100-thousand,” Manuel said. “I know it’s going to be loud and everybody is going to be against us except for the Bills fans that are there. I think the biggest thing, early in the game you really want to try to hush their crowd down if you can go out there and put points on the board or try to get the momentum on your side. That’s where it matters the most when you’re away if you can get that momentum on your side early in the game and try to keep it I think it’ll be a lot easier as far as the noise and that kind of stuff.”
