Back in October after beating the Baltimore Ravens, former LSU and current Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow talked about how SEC Stadiums were louder than the NFL, which has helped him deal with crowd noise at the pro level.

Burrow and Bengals are now headed to Arrowhead Stadium this weekend to face the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship and will have to go against one of the best home-field advantages in the NFL.

Former NFL placekicker Lawrence Tynes, who played with Chiefs for two seasons, saw Burrow's previous comments and thinks he's in for "a rude awakening."

Pretty sure Burrow is up for the challenge...


What does everyone think about Tynes' claim that Arrowhead is the loudest place in sports?

Any field decibel level recordings at SEC stadiums versus Arrowhead to settle this debate? I bet Auburn and Florida were as loud as Arrowhead for Burrow when he played in those stadiums. With that said the crowd noise in Arrowhead could be a factor.

They played in Cincinnati last time. But that doesn't matter, Joe is going 2-0.

Joe’s first audible will be “Kill kill, Lawrence Tynes”

So is Tynes implying that an extra 30k+ people in an SEC stadium are sitting on their hands while every person in Arrowhead leaves hoarse? Weird flex.

No one is insulting the passion or intensity of chiefs fans. But the SEC is a different animal and that’s just the fact, Jack.

I watched that Chiefs/Bills game. There are moments when it is superload, but it is not a sustained loudness, espsecially for big playoff football. You go to Auburn and Florida for big time games, like Joe did, man tha is sustained loudness the whole game.

Is this guy nuts? He faced crowds at Jordan-Haire and the Swamp. All you have to due is tune to hear it. The only time you hear arrowhead is when they do their chant.

SEC stadiums have 30,000 more in attendance than a sold out Chiefs game. That’s going to make a difference.

I love how some fricking dork journalist thinks he knows more about crowd noise than the guy who’s stood on the field in both full-blast SEC stadiums and NFL stadiums dozens of times. I’m sure that some random SPL reading from 4 years ago is much more accurate than Burrow who’s repeatedly experienced the perceived volume of these stadiums firsthand lol

Former NFL Placekicker who played at Troy State in college and are originally Scottish crack me up with their SEC knowledge. I'll take Joe's opinion over his and Yes, it is up for debate.

A cursory interwebs search shows Arrowhead holds the record at 142.2 decibels, but we can see the underlying meaning of his comment, nonetheless.

Alright, just read an article that Arrowhead recorded 142.2 decibels at field level. LINK That really is loud but does it matter after 120 decibels? Anything below 120 and you are going to silent count.

100k people screaming is always louder than 70k people screaming

He also made this quote back in October. Making this a slight at Arrowhead is taking what he said out of context.

KC fans just trying to manufacture some controversy. Whistling past the Graveyard.

To be fair, Lawrence Tynes has never played in a big SEC game.

It's loud but Arrowhead is a stadium surrounded by parking lots off the side of the interstate. It's a generic stadium for a generic NFL team in a generic city.

Shouldn't he be someplace tuning on some bagpipes, or something?
