The New Orleans Saints might have the most intimidating home field advantage in the NFL. If you’re going into the Superdome, bring your ear plugs.
Thus far in today’s NFC Championship Game, we’ve already seen the Los Angeles Rams false start on offense and experience issues with their headsets. We’ve also seen the LA offensive linemen struggle to hear the protection calls from the center.
Even if you’re watching at home, you can sense how loud it is. If you want an even better feel for the environment, check out the video below.

Yeah, as you can tell, it is pretty damn hard to function under those conditions.
Right now, New Orleans has had plenty to get loud about. The Saints have scored on their first three possessions and lead 13-0, thanks to two Will Lutz field goals and a touchdown pass from Drew Brees to the newly-added Garrett Griffin.
The Rams have finally crossed midfield, thanks to a bold fake punt call and execution. However, if they don’t get some points on the board soon, this one could get away from them.
