It’s happening enough that it’s becoming a trend, and the Cowboys want it to stop.
Having a big, fancy stadium isn’t nearly as cool when it fills with visiting fans, and their offense has to go to a silent count because of the noise.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo joked about buying more tickets himself, but make no mistake, he wasn’t
“Yeah, we’ve had interesting home games this year,” head coach Jason Garrett said, via Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com. “Each of those teams have brought a lot of people to the game. That’s something we encounter a lot on the road ourselves. We have a really good national following.
“One of the things we have to do as a team is we have to give our fans reason to cheer. There are a lot of Cowboys fans there yesterday. When we do things the right way and give our fans reason to cheer and be loud, typically things work out well for us. We felt that the other night when we played New Orleans and we certainly felt that a lot in yesterday’s game.”
Using noise machines in practice is one way to prepare. Another would be to start quicker, rather than the 3-0 halftime start that made the visiting Texans fans feel right at home.
