Atlanta Falcons Preparing For Detroit Lions By Blasting Loud Noises

The Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons have a standoff prepared for Sunday when two of the better NFC also-rans face-off at Ford Field. The crowd is expected to be boisterous once again, but the Falcons have a plan to prepare for that: Loud noises.

In a move taken straight out of the Brick Tamland playbook, the Atlanta Falcons are piping in loud noises to prepare for the noise that earned those in attendance a game ball a couple of weeks ago.

This week, the Falcons are practicing with a sound system set at 124 decibels. Average NFL crowd registers at 108. #atldet11

It's all just noise. And it is definitely loud. RT @MattFratt: @FalconsJAdams What's blasting? Some rap, rock, heavy metal?

This just means the Lions fans are going to have to be even louder than 124 decibels to catch the Falcons off guard. Does anyone have a pneumatic drill available?
