Big games like Sunday’s matchup between the Colts and the Cowboys are why Jerry Jones poured $2 billion into his stadium, Jones told reporters this week.
"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, per Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. "So, it’s what I built the stadium for."
While there’s no doubting that JerryWorld is an impressive place, the Cowboys haven’t exactly established a strong homefield advantage there. This season, while they’re 7-0 away from home, they’re just 3-4 at AT&T Stadium and haven’t won there since mid-October.
