Packers Fake Crowd Noise is Louder Than Vikings
In Week 1, the Green Bay Packers dominated the Minnesota Vikings from start to finish. With no fans in the stadium, Minnesota resorted to artificial crowd noise, which even the home viewer could tell was abnormally quiet. Aaron Rodgers reiterated this sentiment in his weekly appearance on the Pat McAfee show.
The lack of crowd noise is a big benefit to the road team, as there was crystal clear communication throughout the entire game. In order to create some kind of home-field advantage at Lambeau Field this week, it sounds like the Packers will be pumping up the noise.
The Packers have an opportunistic defense that thrives off of momentum and crowd noise, so it would be wise to crank the dial and get the stadium booming, with the Detroit Lions coming to town. This is a Packers team that won all of their games in the competitive NFC North last season, and starting 2020 with back-to-back divisional wins would go a long way toward repeating this feat.
Matthew Stafford always seems to play the Packers tough, so raising the noise level at the stadium to create some miscommunication on Detroit's offense would be a huge advantage, especially with the amount of inexperience many of the Lions have in their current system.
