Bills fans attempting to set Guinness World Record for crowd noise

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Fans will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium Sunday when the Buffalo Bills host the New England Patriots in a highly anticipated AFC East showdown.

Guinness World Records confirmed Thursday they will have an adjudicator at Ralph Wilson Stadium for the game to measure the crowd noise.

The current record for crowd noise was set by Kansas City Chiefs fans in Arrowhead Stadium during a Sept. 29 game last season against the Patriots when Guinness World Records measured 142.2 decibels in that venue.

A Bills spokesperson said the team is "simply providing a venue" for the record attempt, which was organized by a fan who started a GoFundMe campaign this week to raise money for Guinness World Records to come to the stadium.

Bills coach Rex Ryan smiled Wednesday when told about the attempt.

"Oh I like the sounds of that," he said. "That sounds good to me."

Ryan anticipates the game to be "as loud as any game I’ve ever been in in my life."

The campaign raised $9,235 by Thursday afternoon, more than the $8,000 goal.
