Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is tweaking practices to reflect a longer-than-usual halftime that will include a performance by Madonna.
The team's Wednesday practice reflected a 30-minute halftime.
Belichick says the shift from a normal 12-minute halftime makes it "like starting the game all over again."
He also conducted practice at Lucas Oil Stadium to the sounds of loud rock music to prepare players for conditions when they meet the New York Giants in Indianapolis.
Belichick included songs by Madonna in the practice playlist.
