During the second quarter of their Monday night showdown against the New England Patriots, the Chiefs reclaimed the record for the world’s loudest outdoor stadium.

A representative from Guinness was on hand at Arrowhead Stadium to confirm that the noise level reached 142.2 decibels, surpassing the previous record of 137.6 which was set by Seattle last season.

The Seahawks, of course, broke the Chiefs' record of 137.5, which they set against Oakland. With Monday's result, the ball is again in Seattle's court.
