Share Article

NFL Football tickets spiked late Monday and into Tuesday after the surging Seahawks sank the New Orleans Saints 34-7 amidst the most deafening crowd din ever recorded, said Marta Ault at The noise from the over 72,000 Seattle fans at CenturyLink Field hit a record-shattering 137.6 decibels, so much clamor that it registered on a nearby seismometer with roughly the same energy as a magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake.

CenturyLink Field, with downtown Seattle in the background, was packed with over 72,000 fans who hit a record 137.6 decibels last Monday night as the Seahawks drowned out the New Orleans Saints 34-7.

Monday’s night’s NFL football game at CenturyLink Field in Seattle was loud. It was so loud, it echoed Seattle’s current dominance over the league and triggered ticket sales for the Seahawks as well as several other NFL teams.

In September, Seattle’s famous 12th man set a Guinness World Record for crowd noise at 136.6 decibels. That ear-splitting mark was eclipsed Monday night when the fans hit 137.6 decibels. By the way, anything over 85 decibels can cause hearing damage. (Source:

According to a University of Washington earth sciences professor, fans made so much noise at CenturyLink Field that it was registered on a nearby seismometer with about the same energy as a magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake.

“Sports tickets are very popular this time of year. NBA Basketball and NHL tickets are selling well, in addition to NFL tickets,” said Marta Ault at online ticket marketplace

“That’s why we’re proud to offer fans the most comprehensive and continuously updated selection of sports tickets online, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase," added Ault.

The Saints were prepared for Seattle to bring the noise. Coach Sean Payton had his players fitted for ear plugs in the week leading up to the game and his coaching staff used posters on the sidelines to relay plays when the stadium got too loud.

In this week’s power rankings, the Seattle Seahawks at 11-1 are ranked a sound Number One. The next teams in order of rank are the New Orleans Saints at 9-3, New England Patriots at 9-3, Denver Broncos at 10-2, Carolina Panthers at 9-3, San Francisco 49ers at 8-4, Kansas City Chiefs at 9-3, Indianapolis Colts at 8-4, Cincinnati Bengals at 8-4 and Philadelphia Eagles at 7-5.

According to NFL pundits, the Seattle Seahawks are the best team in football right now, especially when they play at home. Plus, home-field advantage is huge for the Seahawks' playoff hopes, as they're currently the top seed with a comfortable lead.

Barring a complete meltdown in the final four weeks, the road to the Super Bowl will go through Seattle. And what with all that noise, it’s a place no one wants to visit in January.
