KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs fans hope to bring the pain this Sunday against the Oakland Raiders… literally! Doctors say sounds too loud can be painful on the human ear, including the level of sound Chiefs fans hope to achieve. It’s hard not to feel the excitement.
The Chiefs are undefeated at 5-0 and they are the only team in history to go 5-0 after winning only two games the year before. So this turnaround has been nothing short of a miracle. Now add in two world record attempts and you have all the ingredients for a very memorable weekend.
The first is an attempt at the largest flight formation. A similar formation was flown from the Monday Night football game in 2010 against the San Diego Chargers, that night planes roaring over Arrowhead released red smoke.
Sunday, there will be 45 planes in the air releasing pink smoke in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. The pilots come from 17 states and Washington DC, and if you look to the skies Sunday, you should see them flyover sometime before game time.
The other world record attempt involves loudest crowd sound, specifically for ‘Loudest Crowd Road at an outdoor Sports Stadium.’ Seattle Seahawks fans broke that record last month, registering crowd sound at 136.6 decibels, which is at a level where you can start to lose hearing.
Fans are organized and hope to get the crowd to roar louder than that.
As for the game itself, Oakland is 2-3 and led by former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who is very mobile and dynamic, which could pose problems for the Chiefs defense.
The Raiders have beaten the Chiefs each of the last three meetings, but the Chiefs hope to change that on Sunday and do it in record breaking fashion.
