Call it Seattle Midwest.
The New England Patriots will travel to Arrowhead Stadium on Monday night to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. Arrowhead has long been recognized as one of the loudest stadiums in professional sports; in fact, last October Chiefs fans broke the world noise record for an outdoor sports stadium — previously set by Seattle Seahawks fans at CenturyLink Field — by reaching 137.5 decibels during a game against the Oakland Raiders.
The Patriots are well aware of what they’re getting into, and they’ve been preparing all week by blaring music through the loudspeakers during practice.
“We’ve been practicing with the loud noise and the music and whatnot, and just trying to get acclimated to what we’re going to hear on Monday night,” cornerback Darrelle Revis said.
Don’t worry, though. The Patriots are up to the challenge.
“If you can’t get crunk for Monday night, you’re in the wrong business,” defensive lineman Vince Wilfork added.
