Chief fans officially loudest in NFL

KANSAS CITY, Mo.(AP)-Broncos fans have a challenge when AFC West rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs come to play in Denver next month.

Arrowhead Stadium is considered the loudest stadium in the NFL.. officially.

The Kansas City Chiefs fans broke the world record for an outdoor sports stadium in their 24-7 win over Oakland on Sunday when they reached 137.5 decibels in the closing minutes.

An official from Guinness World Records told The Associated Press that Chiefs fans broke the record of 136.6 set by Seahawks fans during a game against San Francisco earlier this year.

To put that in perspective, a jet engine at 100 feet is about 140 decibels.

"I had people who'd been coming to Chiefs games for decades come up to me and say, `I've never heard it that loud,"' said Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, whose family's franchise has long claimed that Arrowhead Stadium is the loudest in the league. "It's very difficult for a team to play in that."

The Chiefs and the Broncos are the only two teams in the NFL that are 6-0.

On November 17th, the Chiefs will be at Mile High and Denver Bronco fans will try and beat that sound record. However, Denver will have to face the Chiefs' noisy fans in Kansas City in December.
