The New Orleans Saints are in for a tough challenge this weekend. After winning on the road in the postseason for the first time in franchise history, they have to go to arguably the toughest place to play in football—Seattle.

Saints coach Sean Payton is trying to do everything he can to prepare his team to face the NFC's No. 1 seed. Painting a logo on the field is an interesting idea, but it won't get the team ready for the environment at CenturyLink Field.

Sean Payton is reportedly taking measures to recreate the noise at CenturyLink Field, and it is causing some problems. 

Sean Payton says the team blew out two speakers trying to simulate Seattle's crowd noise.
