Tornado warning forces players, fans to stay put at AT&T Stadium

Any Cowboys who hoped to make a quick exit from AT&T Stadium after a painful 34-31 loss to the Packers were blocked from doing so by Mother Nature.

A tornado warning in the Dallas area has led security at the stadium to have people shelter in place away from windows until the storm makes its way through the area. That’s kept fans in the stands and it’s brought a couple of Cowboys players back out to the field.

Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports that quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott are back where they spent the final moments of their rookie seasons. They are watching the goal posts get taken down, which is never all that fun unless you’ve just beaten your biggest rival in a college football game.

There are reportedly 14,000 people without power as a result of the storm, so we’ll hope that everyone stays safe even if they may have to stay somewhere they’d rather not be for a few extra minuts.

  1. The stadium is in Arlington TX, in Tarrant County. Not Dallas or Dallas county. So it is not the “Dallas area”. Get your facts/geography straight.

  2. Aaron is now a tornado? They should have gotten the warning BEFORE the game. At least we were spared seeing Jerruh and son whoopin’ it up in their box. How ’bout them Cowboys!?

  3. Can someone please explain to a certain someone what “Dallas area” means.

    Clearly the Texas Dept. of Education had its funding reduced.

  4. That’s the one thing I don’t miss from Fort Worth and the DWF metroplex. But living in Houston for the past couple of decades now, it’s the hurricanes

    Sorry for the Dallas players to lose yet again in the playoffs. Ecstatic that a jerk like Jerry Jones lost again.

    Wish i could do thumbs up and down. No secret, I’ve hated how Jerry has ran the team after he fired Landry and then ran Jimmy off but there’s hope with Stephen taking more control on over personnel and drafting.

    If the writer had said Arlington then it would have confused himself and all of the haters on here

    Oh, so that’s why they are called the Arlington Cowboys. Thanks for the tip.

    Here’s another tip, there were the Dallas Texans before the Dallas Cowboys

  8. Happy for the outcome. I’m hoping the loss is sufficient to prevent Jerry Jones from being voted into the HOF. Afterall, it was the defence that was the weak spot for Dallas all year and that was where Jerry was last allowed by Stephen Jones to exert his influence. So no way does Jerry Jones deserve to be voted in. 15 years from now, maybe, but not this year.

    The defense is and has been our weak spot for the past decade. NO ONE expected much from them this year but they way over performed this year. That’s still not saying much. But they did help get us back in the game today and then melted away again to be what we originally expected

  10. Jezz–give us a break, willya!! Arlington is certainly in the “Dallas area” as its unbroken suburb the few miles between them. The NY Giants and Jets play in a different state as do the Washington Redskins. As for Boysfan’s Dallas Texans—the NFL version went out of business, and the AFL Dallas Texans became the Kansas City Chiefs, who play in Missouri, by the way.
