Ricky Jean-Francois has request for Detroit Lions fans
The louder the crowd, the tougher it is for an opposing offense not only took all their players but to get into a rhythm. When it comes to sports, home-field advantage is very real thing.
The main reason for the home-field advantage in the National Football League is the crowd. In a NFL football game, a loud and rowdy crowd can make all the difference in the world for the home team. This is especially true when the home team is on defense. The louder the crowd, the tougher it is for the opposing offense not only to make calls at the line of scrimmage, but to get into a rhythm.
On Thursday, Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois Spoke to the media and he had a request for the fans that will be in attendance on Sunday to watch the Lions take on the Seattle Seahawks. He made it extremely clear that he wants the fans to be as loud as possible and that they can worry about their voices on Monday.
Here is the video of his comments.
