It’s the bye week, so time to take a break from the normal routine a bit and ask some interesting questions about the New Orleans Saints. For one, is the Mercedes-Benz Superdome the loudest stadium in the NFL?

Fans are well aware of the noise the Seattle Seahawks make each time they play at home, and just this past weekend the Kansas City Chiefs broke a noise record at Arrowhead Stadium.

While that’s great, Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says he knows the Saints have the loudest stadium per Jeff Duncan of

"“We don’t need the Guinness Book of World Records to tell us that we are the loudest stadium. We already know that we are.” – Saints general manager Mickey Loomis, on the recent “official” world record of 137.5 decibels set by Kansas City Chiefs fans at Arrowhead Stadium for loudest outdoor stadium."

While the other teams are fighting to have the loudest outdoor stadium, we’re inclined to agree with Loomis—there is no louder stadium in the NFL than the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

All domes are loud, but the Saints seem to bring it the most as referenced by many accounts from players themselves. What do you think? Do the Saints have the loudest stadium in the NFL?
