Sellouts are nothing new for the Dallas Cowboys.
In good times and in bad, fans continue to flock to games at home and on the road. The Pittsburgh Steelers set a Heinz Field record of 67,737 with the hot Cowboys in town last Sunday. Dallas won 35-30.
But home is where the heart is. The Cowboys (8-1) host the Baltimore Ravens (5-4) on Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
The Cowboys have drawn 90,000 or more for each home game this season, thanks in part to the club’s party passes, which allow entrance, but not a seat. Seating capacity is 80,000, but the stadium has a capacity of 100,000 (and sometimes more on special occasions).
The breakdown on the home games this season:
▪ New York Giants (92,867)
▪ Chicago Bears (90,554)
▪ Cincinnati Bengals (91,653)
▪ Philadelphia Eagles (93,103)
The Eagles game was a prime-time game.
The Cowboys have 62 consecutive sellouts at AT&T Stadium, including playoffs.
It’s not just the numbers, it’s the noise. But you have to have the numbers to get the noise.
The decibel levels seem to be higher this season.
Winning will do it every time.
The Cowboys’ eight-game winning streak ties the club’s single-season mark set in 1977, which evolved into a Super Bowl XII title.
Kickoff Sunday is at noon. The Cowboys are 32-20 overall at AT&T Stadium, but 11-7 in noon games.
Sunday will also be the first noon home game this season.
The Dallas Cowboys will be hosting their first noon game of the season when they face Baltimore on Sunday at AT&T Stadium. A crowd of more than 90,000 is expected. A look at the event timeline:
8 a.m. AT&T Stadium parking lots open
