Chiefs fans would like a word with Trevor Lawrence, who doubts the noise level at Arrowhead

The Chiefs have the loudest stadium in the NFL. That’s not opinion, but fact.

Arrowhead Stadium, with a capacity of 76,000, set the Guinness World Record for loudest stadium in the world. They did it not once, but twice. Chiefs fans initially earned a record of 137.6 decibels during a 2013 victory over the Saints. They topped that a year later by registering a 142.2 decibel measurement.

Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence, though, doesn’t want to hear it.

“Yeah, I mean, I think obviously, the environment and the atmosphere we’re going to play in is one of, if not the best in the NFL,” Lawrence said this week, via transcripts from the team. “I mean, I can’t imagine it’ll be much louder than our fans were here on Saturday, honestly. But that was when we were on defense, not offense. So, we played there earlier in the year, but this is a little different. It’s a playoff game, divisional round, so the stakes are higher. So, I expect them to be even crazier and [have] a more packed stadium. But at the end of the day, you’ve got to go play and make sure you communicate. That’s the one thing. We’ve got to get in and out of the huddle. We’ve got to get to the line of scrimmage so that we have time to communicate because everything naturally takes longer when it’s loud.”

Chiefs players are imploring their fans to reset the record a third time.

“We need to break this 142.2 decibels record this year.. what y’all think?” safety Juan Thornhill tweeted.

The Jaguars played at Arrowhead in Week 10 and lost to the Chiefs 27-17.

  1. My goodness, he’s added some fuel to a combustible crowd. Arrowhead will be rocking, and T.L. will come to truly appreciate Arrowhead.

  2. He didn’t really say anything wrong, I think he was trying to support his fans by comparing them to KC’s, but backhandedly this will get the Kingdom riled up. If he doesn’t start hot, it could get more difficult as the day goes on for him. Townsend is the best punter in the league and that’s valuable getting teams backed up by their goal line in an environment like Arrowhead. I’ll never forget Elway basically crying or the ref that Arrowhead was too loud, and the refs told the crowd ”if you’re too loud we’re going to take a timeout from KC”.. That alone got KC hyped and Arrowhead and their
    excessive crowd noise was born. And many other cities/teams soon followed. Thanks Elway!

  3. College football stadiums are infinitely louder than any NFL stadium so there’s nothing he needs to worry about.

  4. I was there for the AFC Championship game in 2019 — not so loud. Of course although the score was close, the Patriots dominated the action that day so maybe most of the fans were afraid to let loose? They knew what was up.

    Now when I went there in 1999 it was loud as all get-up. They used to do a thing on the scoreboard tracking false starts — they got like five of them that day. The fans used to go crazy pre-snap. Fourth quarter in a one-score game and Drew Bledsoe led a game-winning drive but Mr. Automatic, Adam V, missed a 30+ yard game winner at the buzzer (hit the upright) and Arrowhead erupted. Like a sonic boom. Now that was loud.

  5. This kid is going to learn the hard way on why to keep his mouth shut when it comes to opposing teams fans.
