Los Angeles Chargers ready to withstand crowd noise vs. Seahawks

Over the years, CenturyLink Field has earned the reputation as one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL. It has been so loud, that Seattle previously held the Guinness World Record title for the loudest roar at a sports stadium in 2013.

The Chargers have dealt with similar atmospheres like when they travel to Denver to take on the Broncos or Kansas City to face the Chiefs, but this will be the loudest that they have come across in many years.

Coach Anthony Lynn and quarterback Philip Rivers are well aware of what to expect once they step foot in the Seahawks’ backyard.

“That place, that’s the loudest place I’ve ever played. I think right now they hold some record for the most false starts in a stadium. It’s going to be loud. It’s going to be crazy. We have to make some contingency plans for our quarterback to maybe call some of his own plays,” Lynn said.

Rivers has played nearly every team across the league and has faced the Seahawks at CenturyLink Stadium a total of three times so he knows what’s in store when him and his offense take the field.

“It’s loud. I mean, it’s hard to argue where is the loudest place, but this one definitely is arguably, 1A, 1B in the group (right) up there. It will be a heck of an atmosphere. They are on a roll right now, as we are, and so it will be a heck of a challenge playing against them on the field, and then certainly we have to be able to handle the noise, as well,” Rivers said, per the team’s official website.

The Bolts have been notorious for simulating loud crowd noises or music at their practices in the past so that way they would be prepared in a live game situation.

Nonetheless, the Chargers are in for a challenge come Sunday. The kickoff time is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. PT.
