Jerry Jones: Cowboys need to develop home field advantage
IRVING, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys are 5-1 at AT&T Stadium this year, a considerable improvement for a team that is 23-16 at home since the venue opened in 2009.
The Cowboys have two of their final three games at home, so team owner and general manager Jerry Jones is hoping they take advantage of the opportunity.
“I’d like to think that we’re developing a home field persona,” Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “That does give you an edge and teams have it around the NFL. And we need to develop that.”
Dallas, who hosts Green Bay Sunday, is 17-11 at AT&T Stadium during Sunday games and 9-5 there when playing NFC opponents not from the NFC East.
If the Cowboys win out they would host a playoff game, something that’s only been done one other time since they moved to Arlington.
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant didn’t seem too concerned with their record at home when he was asked about it Friday.
“I don’t really look into the stats and all that kind of stuff,” Bryant said. “I really don’t pay attention to it. I just play football wherever we’re playing.”
