The fans in attendance had a ball.
The Dallas Cowboys instrumented a massive comeback and were able to do it in front of a record crowd for attendance.
When we say record, we mean “COVID-19 record” attendance. According to Cowboys insider, Clarence Hill Jr. reported that there were 21,708 people in attendance for the game, which breaks the record for fans at a game.
Teams like the Chiefs and Browns have allowed limited attendance to less than a quarter capacity. Most NFL teams have banned fans from attending games, such as the Jets, Giants, and Raiders.
According to quarterback Dak Prescott, he was grateful to have fans in attendance. After the game, Jon Machota of The Athletic tweeted Prescott’s message to the fans at the game.
“Dak Prescott: “I just want to thank those 21,000 fans that showed up today. I think the team fed off that. It was simply just incredible. An incredible game to be part of.”
America’s Team had quite the reaction on Twitter after coming back to win after trailing 39-24 with five minutes remaining. With that said, quarterback Dak Prescott finished the game with 450 yards passing in what was a magical fourth quarter.
After the game, one Cowboys legend was impressed. Michael Irvin posted his emotional rollercoaster ride on Twitter.
“I was writing my EULOGY and I was on the last paragraph,” Irvin wrote. “That’s when AMERICAS TEAM @dallascowboys hit the field and pulled me out of the GRAVE!!!! #cowboys nation we won!!”
As for the game, a lot of that had to do with Dak Prescott. If it was up to NFL insider David Helman, the Cowboys need to pay Dak immediately.
“When you’re done celebrating the win, make sure to get on Facebook and tell your uncle that Dak Prescott brought the Cowboys back from a 20-point deficit by accounting for 468 total yards and 4 touchdowns, leading the Cowboys to 3 fourth quarter scoring drives in the process.”
The Cowboys moved to 1-1 on the season and will play the Seattle Seahawks next week.
