Tony Romo lauds home crowd

By Todd Archer

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have not been able to generate much of a home-field advantage in the brief history of AT&T Stadium, but Sunday might have marked a new beginning.

Unprompted, Tony Romo brought up the crowd’s impact on the game.

“I just want to say that was as good as I’ve seen our home stadium,” Romo said. “If they continue to do that, this is going to be a tough place to play. I was really excited about the way they brought the energy and the noise level that was throughout the football game. That was awesome to see.”

From 2009-12, the Cowboys posted a 17-15 regular-season record in Arlington, and did not give the fans much to cheer about.

Sunday’s victory was the Cowboys’ first in Arlington against the New York Giants.

“You could tell they were rattling the Giants a little bit out there,” safety Barry Church said. “That’s what we need each and every week.”
