AT&T Stadium, previously known as Cowboys Stadium, is a city-owned stadium with a retractable roof in Arlington, Texas, United States. It serves as the home of the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. It replaced the partially covered Texas Stadium, which opened in 1971 and served as the Cowboys’ home through the 2008 season. It was completed on May 27, 2009.

The Dallas Cowboys are a professional football team in the National Football League (the NFL). The Dallas Cowboys play in the National Football Conference (NFC) East Division with three other teams: the New York Giants, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins. The Dallas Cowboys have won 5 Super Bowl Championships. Texas Stadium, located in Dallas, Texas, hosts all Dallas Cowboys home games.
In 1960, the NFL granted the Dallas Cowboys a franchise to join the NFL as an expansion team. Although NFL expansion into Texas drew much opposition from Washington Redskins owner, George Preston Marshall, the team played its first professional action on September 24, 1960 in a 35-28 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. And while the Cowboys did not win a single game in their first season in the NFL, the team made up for the disappointing start by becoming one of the most dominant teams in professional football from 1966 until 1995.
The Dallas Cowboys recorded their first winning season in 1966. Following that first winning season, the Dallas Cowboys recorded a winning record in each of the next 20 subsequent years – that 20-year consecutive winning record streak from 1966 through 1985 is still an NFL record today. In 1966, the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFL East with a 10-3-1 record. However, the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Green Bay Packers 34-27 in the NFL Championship Game. This was the first NFL Championship Game played following the announcement of the merger between the NFL and AFL. And the Green Bay Packers, as NFL Champions went on to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in the first ever AFL-NFL World Championship Game, which would later be called Super Bowl I. In 1967, the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFL Capitol Division with a 9-5 record and advanced to another NFL Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers. Once again, the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 21-17 as Quarterback Bart Starr scored the game winning touchdown on a quarterback sneak with only 16 seconds left. The Green Bay Packers then won their 2nd consecutive Super Bowl Championship with a 33-14 defeat of the Oakland Raiders in the 2nd AFL-NFL World Championship Game (Super Bowl II). Although the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Cleveland Browns in the Divisional round of the playoffs in both 1968 and 1969, the Dallas Cowboys advanced to the Super Bowl in each of the first 2 post merger NFL regular seasons in 1970 and 1971. In 1970, the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFC East with a 10-4 record. In the Divisional round of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Detroit Lions 5-0 in a defensive struggle. The following week in the NFC Championship Game, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the San Francisco 49ers 17-10 by turning two 2nd half turnovers into 2 touchdowns. The Dallas Cowboys would face the Baltimore Colts in the first Super Bowl following the AFL-NFL merger. Super Bowl V is often referred to as the “Blooper Bowl” because of the combined 11 turnovers committed by both teams during the contest. The Dallas Cowboys did not score in the 2nd half, and the Baltimore Colts scored 10 unanswered points, including the game winning 32-yard field goal as time expired, to give the Baltimore Colts a 16-13 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys would have to wait until the following season to record their first Super Bowl Championship. In 1971, the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFC East with an 11-3 record. The Dallas Cowboys easily defeated the Minnesota Vikings 20-12 in the Divisional round of the playoffs and the San Francisco 49ers 14-3 in the NFC Championship Game to advance to its 2nd consecutive Super Bowl appearance. In Super Bowl VI, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Miami Dolphins 24-3 in convincing fashion on both sides off the football. On offense, the Dallas Cowboys recorded over 250 rushing yards and secured 23 first downs. On defense, the Dallas Cowboys held the Miami Dolphins to less than 200 yards of total offense and are still the only team in Super Bowl history to prevent their opponent from scoring a touchdown in Super Bowl contest.
In 1972 and 1973, the Dallas Cowboys lost in the NFC Championship game each season – 26-3 to the Washington Redskins in 1972 and 27-10 to the Minnesota Vikings in 1973. Although the Dallas Cowboys had a winning record in 1974, the team failed to qualify for post-season play for the first time in 8 NFL regular seasons. The Dallas Cowboys returned to the playoffs in 1975, starting a string of 9 consecutive seasons in which the Dallas Cowboys advanced to post-season play. In the Divisional round of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys upset the Minnesota Vikings on a 50-yard “Hail Mary” touchdown pass from Roger Staubach to Drew Pearson with less than a minute to play in the game. The following week, the Dallas Cowboys crushed the Los Angeles Rams 37-7 to advance to their 3rd Super Bowl appearance in 6 years. Unfortunately, the Dallas Cowboys came out on the short end of the stick once again, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-17 in Super Bowl X. Although the Dallas Cowboys led 10-7 at halftime, the Pittsburgh Steelers outscored the Dallas Cowboys 14-7 in the 4th quarter and won the game on a late touchdown pass from Terry Bradshaw to Lynn Swann. From 1976 through 1981, the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFC East 5 times, but only won one Super Bowl. In 1976, the Dallas Cowboys made an early playoff exit as the Los Angeles Rams surprised the Dallas Cowboys with a 14-12 victory in Texas Stadium. In 1977, the Dallas Cowboys had one of the most dominant teams in the NFL and only lost twice during the NFL regular season en route to a 12-2 record. In the Divisional round of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys crushed the Chicago Bears 37-7. In the NFC Championship Game, the Dallas Cowboys dominated the Minnesota Vikings 23-6 to advance to another Super Bowl appearance. This time, the Dallas Cowboys were victorious, recording a convincing 27-10 win over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXII. The Dallas Cowboys forced the Denver Broncos to commit 8 turnovers and held the Denver Broncos to only 61 passing yards for the entire game. Because of the defensive dominance, Defensive Tackle Randy White and Defensive End Harvey Martin shared the Super Bowl MVP award – the first time that 2 players shared the award and the first time that a defensive lineman was named the Super Bowl MVP. In 1978, the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFC East with a 12-4 record and hoped to defend their Championship with a return trip to the Super Bowl. In the Divisional round of the playoffs, things did not look good for the Dallas Cowboys as they trailed the Atlanta Falcons 20-13 at halftime. However, the Dallas Cowboys outscored the Atlanta Falcons 14-0 in the 2nd half to advance to the NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams. After a scoreless first half against the Los Angeles Rams, the Dallas Cowboys forced five 2nd half turnovers and converted those turnovers into 28 points – 21 of which were scored in the 4th quarter. The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Los Angeles Rams 28-0 to advance to the defense of their Super Bowl Championship against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XIII. Super Bowl XIII lived up to all the hype, as the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers engaged in a shootout all game long. And although the Pittsburgh Steelers extended their lead to 35-17 late in the 4th quarter, the Dallas Cowboys never gave up and cut the lead to only 4 points with less than a minute to play. The Dallas Cowboys final attempt at an onside kick proved fruitless, and the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 35-31. Terry Bradshaw won the Super Bowl MVP award by throwing for over 300 passing yards and 4 touchdowns. And although the Dallas Cowboys made the playoffs the next 3 seasons, they never made it to another Super Bowl during the 1980’s, losing in 3 consecutive NFC Championship Games in 1980, 1981 and 1982.
From 1986 through 1990, the Dallas Cowboys endured 5 consecutive losing seasons for the first time since 1964 when the team recorded losing seasons in its first 5 years in the NFL. In February 1989, new owner Jerry Jones fired the only Head Coach that the Dallas Cowboys had ever known, Tom Landry, and hired the brash young Head Coach from the University of Miami Hurricanes, Jimmy Johnson. That year, Head Coach Johnson and the Dallas Cowboys selected UCLA Bruins Quarterback Troy Aikman as the first overall pick in the 1989 NFL Draft and then traded away veteran Running Back Herschel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings for more draft picks in future seasons. And although the Dallas Cowboys finished with an atrocious 1-15 record in Jimmy Johnson’s first year as Head Coach, the Dallas Cowboys were paving the foundation for an unprecedented dynasty in the 1990’s. In 1990, the Dallas Cowboys drafted Running Back Emmitt Smith from the University of Florida, and Jimmy Johnson had his three-headed monster intact – Quarterback Troy Aikman, Running Back Emmitt Smith and Wide Receiver Michael Irvin. From 1992 through 1996, the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFC East for 5 consecutive years. In 1992, the Dallas Cowboys lost only 3 games en route to a 13-3 record. The Dallas Cowboys crushed the Philadelphia Eagles 34-10 in the Divisional round of the playoffs and had to travel to the west coast the following week to face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. After a 10-10 halftime tie, the Dallas Cowboys outscored the San Francisco 49ers 20-10, largely in part to 4 critical 49ers turnovers, giving the Dallas Cowboys a 30-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. In Super Bowl XXVII, the Dallas Cowboys annihilated the Buffalo Bills 52-17. The Dallas Cowboys forced the Buffalo Bills to commit 9 turnovers and Super Bowl MVP Troy Aikman threw for over 270 yards and 3 touchdowns. By advancing to Super Bowl XXVII, the Buffalo Bills became the first team to advance to 3 consecutive Super Bowls and also the first team to lose 3 consecutive Super Bowls. The following season, the Dallas Cowboys repeated as NFC East champs with a 12-4 record. Once again, the Dallas Cowboys cruised through the playoffs with a 27-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional round of the playoffs, and a 38-21 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. In Super Bowl XXVIII, the Dallas Cowboys found themselves up against the Buffalo Bills for the 2nd consecutive year and the pre-game focus surrounded the question of whether the Buffalo Bills would lose a 4th straight Super Bowl. And although the Buffalo Bills rushed out to a 13-6 halftime lead, fate was not on their side. The Dallas Cowboys shut out the Buffalo Bills 24-0 in the 2nd half to run away with a 30-13 victory and secure their 2nd consecutive Super Bowl victory. Running Back Emmitt Smith rushed for 132 yards and scored 2 touchdowns to win the Super Bowl MVP award. The Super Bowl Championship was the Dallas Cowboys’ 4th Super Bowl Championship, which at the time tied them for the most Super Bowl Championships in NFL history with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Francisco 49ers. In 1994, the Dallas Cowboys faced the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game for the 3rd consecutive year. This time around, the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 38-28 and went on to win Super Bowl XXIX, giving the San Francisco 49ers franchise its 5th Super Bowl Championship (surpassing both the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers on the all-time list). The following year, the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFC East with a 12-4 record. The Dallas Cowboys raced through post-season play once again, with easy victories over the Philadelphia Eagles (30-11) in the Divisional round of the playoffs and the Green Bay Packers (38-27) in the NFC Championship Game. Super Bowl XXX matched the Dallas Cowboys against the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 3rd time in NFL history. Ironically, the team that would win Super Bowl XXX would then tie the San Francisco 49ers for most Super Bowl Championships of all-time with 5. The Dallas Cowboys converted Super Bowl MVP Larry Brown’s 2 interceptions into 2 touchdowns and ultimately won the game 27-17. The Super Bowl victory gave the Dallas Cowboys franchise its 5th Super Bowl Championship. In 1996, although the Dallas Cowboys finished atop the NFC East for a 5th consecutive season, the Dallas Cowboys would go onto lose to the Carolina Panthers 26-17 in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
From 1997 through 2004, the Dallas Cowboys recorded only 2 winning seasons and one .500 season. The Dallas Cowboys lost in the Wild Card round of the playoffs in each of those seasons. In 2003, the Dallas Cowboys hoped that the hiring of legendary Head Coach Bill Parcells would bring back a more consistent winning attitude to the struggling franchise. And while Head Coach Parcells has led the team to 2 winning seasons in his 3 years as head coach, the team has not won a playoff game during his tenure. During the 2006-2007 NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys finished 2nd in the NFC East with a 9-7 record. The Dallas Cowboys advanced to post-season play, but lost in the Wild Card round of the playoffs to the Seattle Seahawks 21-20 when Quarterback Tony Romo dropped the snap on what should have been a game winning field goal for the Cowboys. During the 2007-2008 NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys finished 1st in the NFC East with a 13-3 record under first-year head coach Wade Phillips. The Dallas Cowboys advanced to post-season play earning a bye week for winning the NFC East, but lost in the Divisional round of the playoffs to the eventaul Super Bowl Champion New York Giants 21-17.
The Dallas Cowboys - America’s Team
The Dallas Cowboys are considered “America’s Team” because they always seemed to have a large contingency of fans wherever they played their games. Even for road games, Dallas Cowboys fans made their presence known with Cowboys jerseys and hats and loud cheering sections. A majority of the Dallas Cowboys games were broadcast nationally on television each NFL regular season, so this only helped to develop a broader nationwide Dallas Cowboys fan base. In the Dallas Cowboys first game of the 1979 NFL regular season, a national television broadcaster dubbed the Dallas Cowboys “America’s Team” and the nickname has been used ever since. This “preferential” treatment and the storied success of the expansion franchise have combined to create a number of “haters” throughout the country as well. There is no middle ground with the Dallas Cowboys – you either “love ‘em” or “hate ‘em” – similar to how many people feel about the New York Yankees in MLB baseball, the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish in college football and the Boston Celtics in NBA basketball.
