    1. Seattle
    2. Houston
    3. Baltimore

    With Dallas and NOLA as honorable mentions.
    The guy that designed the Seattle stadium was a genius. The clamshell half-roof on both sides keeps it an open air stadium while keeping 80% of the fans dry from the frequent rains. And the crowd noise gets up in that clamshell and then echoes back downwards towards the field.

    Someone blamed the 'Hawks for pumping in crowd noise for a playoff game a few years ago. After having been there for a regular season game (last year vs. Ravens) I can tell you that crowd noise in Seattle is legit.

    I'm only addressing crowd noise.

    Houston is loud for college bowl games for crissakes. Crazy!

    Seattle? Never been there for football, but the instant digital classic of Lynch vs. NO makes one appreciate how loud and crazy it can get there.

    I'm sure just about everyone has seen the clip in some shape or form, but the fan cam starts at 1:08.

The Ravens have not played well on the road the last few years. I would not be surprised to see the Texans win by double digits. I don't have a lot of faith in the Ravens coordinators. I used to have faith in the DCs but am not convinced Pees can get this thing turned around on defense.
    That still doesn't mean that the Ravens have no chance in wining this game, the way this seasons going I would not be surprised if any team beaten any team this week. The Ravens are still one of the best teas in the NFL, and I'm not buying the fact that we can't win on the road, when last year we went 4-4 and beat the number 1 defense in Pittsburgh. Our road record really isn't that bad, infact it's pretty good, people just make a meal out of it because we are just better at home which can be said about all NFL teams.
