Matt LaFleur is challenging you to be loud.
Between 8,000 and 9,000 fans will dot the seats at Lambeau Field for Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.
The head coach believes those lucky fans can have an impact on the outcome.
“I think the more people we can pack into Lambeau, the more energy that is brought with it, the more our guys will feed off of that,” LaFleur tells WTMJ. “Certainly, our guys are excited.”
The homefield advantage may go further than fans in the stands.
Rams head coach Sean McVay is freezing footballs in practice this week, trying to simulate Wisconsin weather conditions from sunny California.
LaFleur isn’t reading too much into the weather, though.
“I think that’s kind of overblown,” LaFleur says. “These guys are professionals. I do think when you’re not used to [the cold] it can wake you up a little bit, but a lot of these guys that are playing may have come from cold weather climates. Guys will be ready to adjust quickly, and the focus will be on the football game.”
The forecast is calling for temperatures in the mid-30’s with clouds at kickoff on Saturday.
