The Carolina Panthers worked with crowd noise this week at practice in anticipation of the unknown at Super Bowl 50.
The Panthers face the Denver Broncos on Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., home of the San Francisco 49ers.
“(We) don’t know how the crowd is going to react so we worked the crowd noise on both sides of the ball,” Rivera said.
Rivera said he didn’t have any expectations for what the crowd would be like – either pro-Broncos or pro-Panthers – except that it would be loud.

The Panthers also plan to play music during stretching at practices at San Jose State. Carolina usually plays two or three songs during their stretch period in Charlotte, and Rivera expects that to continue out west.
The Panthers played Drake and Future’s “Jumpman,” Kings of Leon’s “Fans” and Bankroll Fresh’s “Walked In” on Friday during their last practice of the season in Charlotte.
