The Dallas Cowboys enjoy no meaningful home-field advantage at beautiful AT&T Stadium, which opened in the summer of 2009.

As of Week 6 of the 2017 NFL regular season, the Dallas Cowboys appear no closer to gaining any significant advantage when playing at AT&T Stadium.

Having officially opened on June 6, 2009 for a country music event, the venue formerly known as Cowboys Stadium has hosted numerous major events.

These include concerts, a Super Bowl, an NBA All-Star Game, professional wrestling, college basketball and football, boxing and so on.

Oh yeah, there’s been some Dallas Cowboys football games as well – 67 to be exact as of mid-October in ’17.

Now, one would assume that, given the appearance of this building from an airplane having just taken off from DFW International Airport, that it’s an extremely difficult place for a visiting team to play.

Think of locations like CenturyLink Field in Seattle or Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.

We’re talking about high-energy fans filled with excitement hours before kickoff who can’t wait to get inside and start making ear-drum busting noise, right?

Not exactly.
