IRVING, Texas -- Few things make Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones swell more with pride than AT&T Stadium. His family is one. His team is another.
But that stadium just might be third.
And Jones can’t wait to show it off again Sunday when the Indianapolis Colts (10-4) come to town.
Despite its opulence, the Cowboys have not had a home-field edge in the $1.2 billion stadium. They are just 3-4 and score almost two fewer touchdowns a game than they do on the road. The Cowboys have lost three straight at home, entering Sunday’s game.
They have not won there since Oct. 19 when they beat the New York Giants.
"To have this game right now for our home fans, and obviously the caliber of competition Indianapolis is, this is a serious, meaningful (game) for our franchise, meaningful for the last few years, meaningful for what we can do this year," Jones said. "So, it’s what I built the stadium for."
