Amid all of the jokes about their mediocrity, America loves to watch them some Dallas Cowboys football, and the statistics prove it as a report from AdWeek.com shows that ‘America’s Team’ played in five of the ten most-watched games of this past NFL season.

As part of this, they were involved in the most-watched game of the 2013 NFL regular season when they welcomed in the Oakland Raiders into AT&T Stadium on Thanksgiving Day.

Three of the other games in that list were also at home, with the lone road game being their November victory over the New York Giants in Metlife Stadium.

What was also an interesting tidbit from the report was the fact that the majority of those viewers weren’t even withing the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Does this prove that the Cowboys still are America’s Team? It very well may, but that’s not necessarily a good thing. While there are fans scattered throughout the country, there are a lot of those people that are specifically tuning in to watch the Cowboys falter.

Either way, Jerry Jones’ checkbook has gotten fatter.

    Other than Oakland and the home New York game, both wins, what were the other three? I’m now curious how many of the other three Dallas won or were blown out of?

    That’s what Jerry “P T Barnum” Jones meant when he said “doing my best work….” Had nothing to do with winning ball games.
