Kelly Stafford on SoFi atmosphere: ‘I have never seen so many of the opposing team’s fans at a game’


Rams head coach Sean McVay isn’t the only one admitting that 49ers fans took over and affected the game at SoFi Stadium last weekend.

Kelly Stafford, wife of Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, said she has never experienced an atmosphere like that at a home game since her husband entered the league.

I have never seen so many of the opposing team’s fans at a game,” Kelly Stafford said on her podcast this week, per Sports Illustrated. “And we came from Detroit, and there are a lot of good traveling teams there, but that was wild…It was crazy. I’ve never seen anything like that, but it made it very hard for us.”

Kelly Stafford said that the Rams had to go to a silent count in their own stadium, meaning the 49ers fans were so loud when the Rams had the ball, that the offensive line couldn’t hear the calls. The 49ers on the other hand, were able to hear well enough that they were able to go through their normal pre-snap cadence.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he’s not worried about 49ers fans overrunning AT&T Stadium this weekend, but after hearing about the atmosphere at SoFi, maybe he should be.
