AT&T Stadium is a $1.2 billion palace that has received nothing but positive reviews, but it has not produced a home-field advantage for its tenant.

The Cowboys are only 27-28 since the stadium opened in 2009, including a 1-6 record there this year.

Even last year when the Cowboys went 12-4 and won the NFC East, they were only 4-4 at home in the regular season. They set a team record with an 8-0 record on the road.

In only three of the seven seasons they have played in Arlington have the Cowboys finished with a winning record at home, though they are 2-0 in the postseason at AT&T.

“Again, you’ve heard me say this before, we believe we have the greatest stadium in the world,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “We believe we’ve got the greatest fans in the world. And where you play, who you play, when you play is really irrelevant. You just have to play well. We haven’t done that well enough at our stadium. Again, we love playing there. It’s a fantastic stadium, and we feel like it’s a privilege to play there.”
