Saints fans got so loud that part of ceiling fell inside Mercedes-Benz Superdome
The Mercedes-Benz Superdome is loud. Very loud.
But on Sunday afternoon in the NFC Championship Game, the crowd took noise to a new level.
It got so loud in the building that part of the ceiling near the media workroom actually fell after Demario Davis picked off Jared Goff in the first quarter:

Amazingly enough, the Saints actually had a better record on the road this season, going 7-1 away from the Superdome while going 6-2 at home.
Still, I highly doubt the crowd was ever as loud during the regular season as it is on Sunday afternoon.
As a matter of fact, Rams players are clearly having a very difficult time hearing, as Goff is having trouble communicating signals to his teammates. The Saints crowd is even loud during timeouts, as Los Angeles players and coaches are finding it very hard to talk with one another on the sideline.
New Orleans got off to a great start in this game, taking an early lead thanks to some strong defensive possessions and a couple of solid drives offensively. Of course, Davis’ interception also helped, resulting in a Saints field goal.
New Orleans won 13 games and not only captured the NFC South division title this season, but ended up finishing with the best record in the NFL.
The Saints were awarded with a first-round bye for their efforts, and last week, New Orleans defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
Drew Brees and Co. are looking for their first Super Bowl appearance since the 2009-10 campaign.
