Buffalo Bills attempt at breaking Chiefs crowd noise record falls short

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Give the Buffalo Bills credit. They were close to breaking the Kansas City Chiefs Guinness World Record for crowd noise at an outdoor stadium but ultimately those efforts were not enough. The Chiefs and Arrowhead Stadium keep the crowd noise record.

The Chiefs themselves are proud of this record as they should be. There is a new "Loudest Stadium In The World" sign as you walk out of the Arrowhead tunnel. The Chiefs broke the crowd noise record last September.

The Bills got close but not enough, according to the Buffalo News.

Fans registered 118.8 decibels during player introductions; 121.2 after the National Anthem; and 122.2 after the Bills took a first-quarter lead with a two-yard touchdown run by Karlos Williams. A second-half peak of 122.9 decibels was reached after Sammy Watkins caught a 24-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth-quarter to bring the Bills to within five points. It was still loud enough to leave a ringing in the ears.

If anyone was going to break it, I would prefer it be Bills fans. They are a lot like Chiefs fans and I felt for them as they got so jacked for the Patriots game last Sunday only to fall short. That looked like a great environment for football.
