KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Arrowhead Stadium is once again the loudest stadium in the NFL.

This time, it’s official.

The Kansas City Chiefs fans broke the world record for an outdoor sports stadium in their 24-7 win over Oakland 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.
