Manning: AT&T Stadium "a Tough Place to Play"

Peyton Manning was impressed by the home crowd in his AT&T Stadium debut



    In the four-plus year history of AT&T Stadium, the venue has drawn praise for plenty of things, but providing a strong home-field advantage for the Dallas Cowboys has never been one. On Sunday though, according to Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning, JerryWorld was a tough environ for a visiting quarterback.

    This is a bit strange, as a good portion of the crowd was made up of orange and blue-clad Broncos fans. Watching the broadcast on TV, these fans made it sound like the game was being played in Denver at times. But as the Cowboys came back in the second half, so did the Dallas fans in the crowd.

    “It’s a heck of a stadium,” Manning said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Certainly a lot of Broncos fans there. It was loud. Certainly a tough place to play. The Cowboys fans were rocking, especially early in the game when they were up 14-nothing and then there at the end when they took the lead, so it’s a tough place to play.”
