This weekend, the San Francisco 49ers will be heading to Philadelphia, where they will be facing the Eagles in the NFC Championship.
Whenever a game of this magnitude is being played, there is typically trash talk that ensures before the game, usually by players of both teams.
Deebo Samuel pitched in his two cents, commenting on the Eagles’ stadium.
#49ers WR Deebo Samuel, asked about playing in Philadelphia and their environment: "We know it's gonna be loud, but no stadium is as loud as ours at the end of the day."

Samuel contends that, although Philadelphia might be loud on Sunday, his home stadium is much louder.
Upon hearing this, we wanted to check in on the merits of Samuel’s statement.
According to several media sites across the internet, the loudest decibel level ever recorded at an NFL game happened at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
In a 2014 matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots, a world record for decibels was broken.
During this Monday Night Football game, Chiefs fans were recorded at 142.2 decibels.
For comparison, this is a slightly higher decibel rate than a fighter jet leaving an aircraft carrier.
Samuel’s comments were slightly misdirected.
However, the sentiment remains, and, ahead of their matchup, Samuel was trying to fire up Eagles fans.
It appears to have worked.
Eagles fans across the internet have been outraged by his comments, contending that their stadium is significantly louder than that of the 49ers.
This controversy provides just another exciting storyline to be on the lookout for on Sunday.
Samuel is one of the most dynamic playmakers for the 49ers, who looks to have a huge impact on the NFC Championship.NEXT: Deebo Samuel Makes His Thoughts Clear About Playing In Philadelphia
