The Dallas Cowboys are taking on the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium for the NFC East Championship and a trip to the playoffs. The Cowboys are limping into this game while the Eagles are brimming with confidence after defeating the Chicago Bears 54-11 when they had a chance to clinch the NFC North.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is calling on the hometown fans to cheer loudly for the home team to provide a home-field advantage.
“We’re going to need our fans on Sunday night to make a difference in this ballgame,” Garrett said, via Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. “Our players, our coaches, our football team and our organization, we’re awfully excited about this opportunity. We want our fans to be excited and show that excitement come Sunday night because they can make a difference in this ballgame.”
AT&T Stadium has been known to lack any sort of home-field advantage. The crowd is routinely divided with large groups of fans cheering on away teams. The Cowboys fans that do come haven’t been known to be very vocal.
