    If the Texas Rangers can muster a win in the first three games of their American League Division Series matchup with the Tampa Bay Rays, the area around Cowboys Stadium and Rangers Ballpark In Arlington will likely be a veritable zoo on Sunday.

    This is because the Cowboys have announced, per the Dallas Morning News, that they will not consider moving the scheduled, 3:15 PM kickoff time for Sunday’s game against Tennessee, regardless of the Rangers’ schedule.

    Major League Baseball has yet to decide or announce the time for a potential game four, but, suffice it to say, fans can expect a lot of bodies and a lot of cars if they’re making their way to either of these contests Sunday.

    This is to be expected of both Major League Baseball and the Dallas Cowboys, but it could obviously present some problems for fans. Cowboys Stadium was recently found, in a study, to be the fourth worst venue in the NFL, in terms of gameday traffic.

    Update: The Arlington Police Department has issued a release in anticipation of this weekend's events urging fans to " pre-plan your routes, arrive early, follow the directions of officers working the intersections, and be patient."
