Dallas Cowboys

Many open seats as Cowboys-Redskins kickoff

AT&T Stadium was less than half filled during the national anthem before the Dallas Cowboys hosted the Washington Redskins Thursday night.

The luster of the Dallas Cowboys may be growing dull.

The stadium that seats over 90,000 was less than half full at kickoff Thursday night at AT&T Stadium. Rally towels laid on the back of seats throughout the stadium stood out starkly.

Perhaps some fans were stuck in evening traffic trying to make the 7:25 p.m. start.

Or maybe the Cowboys’ three-game losing streak is starting to affect attendance.

Standing-room only tickets that typically sell for $25 were going for $6 on reseller stubhub.com. Upper deck seats were selling for as low as $20.
