Seahawks Fans Acheive Loudest Stadium Record AgainBy: Tobias Roth - December 3, 2013
The Seahawks fans have clearly proved that Seattle is the toughest place for the opposing teams to play throughout this season. They set the record for loudest stadium once already this season, breaking it once again last night.
In Monday night’s game, the Seahawks faced off against the New Orleans Saints in a game that could have gone either way as they are the two top teams in the conference, fighting for the No.1 seed in the playoffs.
However, the noise was definitely a factor with the power of the Seahawks fans, and the Seahawks handled Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints easily, proving that they are the top team, with a final score of 34-7.
Seahawks Fans have set themselves apart from fans of other teams in the league, while being dubbed “The 12th Man.” Their two star players Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch also have the nicknames of “Danger” and “Beast Mode” respectively, making any team in the league fear the tough Seahawks, and especially on their home field.
After the Seahawks fans set the record for the loudest stadium record once already this season, last night the nose rose even louder. The fans in Seattle did all that they could in order to boost their team, and it certainly worked.
At one point during the game, the noise of the crowd reached a level of 137.6 decibels, after their previous record was set at 136.6 decibels. The noise level was reached during the second quarter of the game, and after that the Seahawks completely took control of the game, and shut out the Saints in the second half.
Just in case anyone does not realize just how loud 137.6 decibels is, a jet engine traveling at a height of about 100 feet is about 140 decibels. The Seahawks are on a path to secure the No.1 seed in the NFC, and subsequently earn themselves homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. If the noise of the crowd continues to be this effective, it is hard to imagine how anyone will be able to defeat them during playoff time.
The Seattle Seahawks are currently No.1 in the league with a record of 11-1, and leading the NFC West division. After an easy home game against the Saints, the Seahawks are set to play an away game against their division rival, the San Francisco 49ers, in their next game.
Here is a look at what the crowd sounded like the last time the record was broken. Keep in mind that they were even louder last night.
