Chiefs fans cheer during the first quarter with the Patriots offense on the field.

Arrowhead Stadium is officially the outdoor loudest stadium in the world — again.

The crowd on hand for the Chiefs game against the Patriots registered a 142.2 on the decibel scale, surpassing the 137.6 registered by a Seahawks crowd set at CenturyLink Field last season.

The record has bounced back and forth between the two fan bases, with Seahawks fans first taking over the Guinness World Record Sept. 13, 2013, against the 49ers before fans at Arrowhead won it back against the Raiders a month later.

On Monday Night Football against the Saints at the beginning of December, Seattle fans pumped out the 137.6 against to set the record again.
