    After Houston Texans fans filled up AT&T Stadium on Sunday, to the point where the Dallas Cowboys had to use a silent snap count, quarterback Tony Romo complained that the team could really use more of a homefield advantage.

    Head coach Jason Garrett sees a pretty simple fix for this problem.

    "One of the things we have to do as a team is we have to give our fans reason to cheer," Garrett said on Monday, per ESPN Dallas. "There are a lot of Cowboys fans there yesterday. When we do things the right way and give our fans reason to cheer and be loud, typically things work out well for us. We felt that the other night when we played New Orleans and we certainly felt that a lot in yesterday's game."

    Opposing fans have been very well represented in each of the team’s first three home games of 2014.

    "Yeah, we've had interesting home games this year, playing San Francisco in Week 1 and New Orleans and also Houston," Garrett said. "Each of those teams have brought a lot of people to the game. That's something we encounter a lot on the road ourselves. We have a really good national following."
