Local News

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) — In Thursday’s preseason game, fans at Lambeau Field may have noticed something was missing during a third-down play – no foghorn.

During the Green Bay Packers’ preseason game against the Houston Texans on August 8, fans were surprised to hear a foghorn sound effect during a third-down.

Many went to social media to voice their distaste for the sound, including Local 5 viewers.

Local 5’s Lily Zhao reports there was no foghorn during Thursday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

While there was no sound effect during the preseason game, only time will tell if Head Coach Matt LaFleur comes up with a better rallying sound effect.

Fans did see an interesting light display after Ty Summers’ pick-six.

The stadium lights were dimmed while additional lights were flashed. According to Local 5’s Lily Zhao, the Baltimore Ravens did this as well during a preseason game.
