Dallas Cowboys tickets
Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team that plays in the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). They are headquartered in Valley Ranch in suburban Irving, Texas, which lies between Fort Worth and Dallas. The team plays its home games at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which finished construction in time for the 2009 season. The Cowboys joined the NFL as a 1960 expansion team. The team's national following might best be represented by its NFL record of consecutive games in front of sold-out stadiums. The Cowboys' streak of 160 sold-out regular and post-season games began in 1990, and included 79 straight sellouts at their former home, Texas Stadium, and 81 straight sell-outs on the road.
Dallas Cowboys news
The 2009 season started on a positive with a road win, but fortunes quickly changed as Dallas fell to a 2-2 start. In week 5, with starting wide receiver Roy Williams sidelined, future Pro Bowl receiver Miles Austin got his first start of the season and had a record setting day to help lead Dallas to an overtime win over Kansas City. Following their Week 6 bye week, Dallas went on a 3 game winning streak including impressive wins over Atlanta and NFC East division rival Philadelphia. Dallas despite entering December 8-3 and in 1st place in the division, talks of past December collapses and another collapse in 2009 seemed validated after consecutive December losses to the New York Giants and San Diego. Thought of as a team that would continue a downward slide and miss the post season, a unified and motivated Dallas team caught fire in the final 3 weeks of the season by ending New Orleans’ previously unbeaten season in Week 15 and posted back to back shutouts against division rivals Washington and Philadelphia.
Dallas opened the new decade on January 3, 2010, the 2009 season finale. In a repeat of the 2008 season finale, Dallas squared off against Philadelphia, this time the stakes were higher with an NFC East championship and possible number two seed at stake as opposed to just a wild card spot on the line the previous season. For the first time in franchise history the team posted their 2nd straight shut out and in the process, clinched their 2nd NFC East title in 3 years as well as the 3rd seed in the NFC Playoffs. In the Wild Card round of the playoffs, Dallas will once again host the Eagles in a rematch of Week 17.
