Dallas defensive tackle Henry Melton wants AT&T Stadium to be packed with Cowboys fans for Sunday night’s matchup with the New Orleans Saints, and he wants them--and you--to be loud.
Consider it a personal invitation.
“I just want to let everybody know to come to the game,” Melton said this week. “It’s going to be Sunday night at 7:30 and we’ll be out there playing the Saints. It’s going to be a good show. Come on out. Spend some money. Don’t just stay out in the parking lot, come on in.”
AT&T Stadium has been criticized in the past for not providing much of a home-field advantage, though there have been exceptions. Melton hopes Sunday night is one of those exceptions, as he’s a firm believer in the idea that crowd noise can make a difference.
“Of course you hear it,” Melton said. “As a defensive player, it’s huge to get the crowd into it. You feed off their energy. You already have energy going into the game, but when you hear the crowd getting into it, it gives you another pep.”
