The Texas A&M Aggies are known for employing ‘The 12th Man’ at recently renovated Kyle Field at College Station. But if you travel just a few hours north from there on I-35 into Arlington, you find this modern day football palace that has no problem attracting people for a football game, but they just don’t do much once they arrive.

It’s telling that the Dallas Cowboys lost their first regular-season game at Cowboys Stadium to the New York Giants on prime time television. Equally fitting is the fact that America’s Team lost it’s final game at Texas Stadium less than a year before.
Before last season’s surprising 13-3 run to the top of the NFC, the Cowboys could still say that they were undefeated at AT&T Stadium during the playoffs, but that’s out the window as well.
As of right now, the Cowboys are a mediocre 35-32 at this still-new facility and hold a record of 2-1 in the postseason. Three playoff games over eight seasons don’t do very much to excite the locals and as Dallas currently sits at 2-3 on the season during the bye week, it’s no guarantee that a playoff run is in the cards this year.
