Kansas City Chiefs: Arrowhead Stadium is Officially Back
Once one of the most feared places to play in the NFL, Arrowhead had lost its ferocity in recent years due to a lack of football worth making (positive) noise about. In fact, it has officially been documented by Guinness World Records that Arrowhead has the highest-recorded decibel level in an outdoor stadium with a mark of 137.5.
After the 12th man of the Seattle Seahawks broke the record earlier this season, Chiefs fans made a plan to take it from them, and the front office paid to have an adjudicator from Guinness flied out to record the attempt. This story may be one that is ‘to be continued’ as KC topped Seattle’s 136.6 mark by less than a decibel.
The record is nice, but the impact the Arrowhead crowd had on the Raiders’ offense was what really counted. The deafening noise helped cause three false starts and three delay-of-game penalties for the rattled Oakland offense. Not only did the Raiders have trouble hearing the snap count, but a few of the dead-ball fouls were played out because neither team could hear the whistle.
It sounds strange, but beating Oakland was a necessity for Kansas City to be able to claim that Arrowhead is once again a force to be reckoned with. The Raiders have come into Arrowhead often with terrible teams, and beat the Chiefs six straight times before Sunday’s contest. Oakland hasn’t had a single winning season in those years, yet has come into Kansas City and won every time.
Your rival cannot own you in your house. The Chiefs needed to get this monkey off their back to officially make Arrowhead one of the most intimidating places in the league.
