The Cowboys finish off their regular season with a key divisional matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. If history is any indication, this game could very well decide the fate of either one of these teams and whether or not they’ll be playing any more games in January. You’ll want to get your tickets early for this one, because come December there’s going to be a mad scramble for seats if either one of these teams are in the playoff hunt, which seems likely for the Cowboys and certainly possible for the Eagles. It’s no secret around the NFL that these teams hate each other with a passion, so make sure to warm up your voices beforehand so we can really give it to those Philadelphia bums.
While Jerry Jones has expressed his confidence in the team’s young quarterback, Cowboys legend Tony Dorsett isn’t so sure. He was quoted yesterday as saying “I don’t know why on God’s Earth Tony Romo has been anointed a superstar in the National Football League. Tony is very young in his career. Not to say you can’t be young in your career and be a superstar because you’ve got one up there in Minnesota in Adrian Peterson. But the thing is this: You have a guy who hasn’t done much, and quarterbacks in the NFL, most of them go through this growing curve. He hasn’t gone through that growing curve, but he was anointed this great player all of a sudden. Now he’s having to live up to that. And obviously Tony has some deficiencies.”
Romo put in one of the worst performances of his career against the Giants on Sunday, going just 13 for 29 with 3 picks, all of which led to Giants touchdowns.
Lady luck was not on our side in last night’s loss to the Giants. Every single bounce seemed to favor the Giants on their way to a last-second victory on the opening night of the new Cowboys Stadium. Jerry Jones’ $1.2 billion modern marvel sparkled in its debut and nobody hit the giant TV, but the Giants were blessed with some magic in front of 105,000 screaming Cowboys fans. Eli Manning had about a dozen passes deflected, as he does every game because he’s too stupid to realize you can’t just skim a ball an inch above a defenders head and not expect him to try to touch it, but those passes didn’t end up in the hands of Cowboys cornerbacks. Instead, on the final game-winning drive, a very poor pass that would have been behind the wide receiver was deflected right into his hands. On another play earlier in the game, Witten, who will probably see his awareness rating go way down in next year’s Madden, allowed a pass thrown behind him to hit off the back of his foot and into the hands of a Giants defender. Had the officials not initially ruled an incomplete pass, it would have been a pick-6 on Romo. Witten just stood there, oblivious to what had just happened. Uggh, it was an ugly game for us and an even uglier way to lose. Let’s hope we can get ‘em back at lowly Giants Stadium later this year.
In other Cowboys related news, there appeared to be problems with the sound system in the new stadium. The national anthem sounded awful and some speakers seemed to be malfunctioning while it was being sung. I’m sure Jerry Jones’ audio guy is buried in an unmarked grave right now.

The Chargers come into Dallas to play the Cowboys on December 13 in a non-conference game. This will be the second-to-last regular season home game for the Cowboys in their new stadium. Tickets are selling for lower than normal on the secondary market, or at least what I consider “normal” given that this is the first season we’ve had in the new stadium and there’s limited date available.
Here are some tickets still available for this game
The Cowboys will host their first Thanksgiving Day game in the new stadium when they play the Raiders on November 26. Apparently the NFL wants the Cowboys to beat up on one of their weaker teams because nothing in more American than turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and a Cowboys win on Thanksgiving. As one would expect, tickets for this game are reselling at a higher price than normal. The cheap seats in the Upper Reserved areas are going for about $85-$90, while luxury suites are going for about $30,000 (that’s with 20 tickets and 4 parking passes, mind you). This should be a fun game to watch for all Cowboys fans, and it’s the one time in the year when the Cowboys’ stadium is truly the center of the universe.

The division rival Washington Redskins make their first trip to the new stadium on November 22. Like the previous week, this game will have the early start time with kickoff at noon. Tickets for this game are selling well, but there are still Upper Reserved seats to be had for under $60. I’ve been looking on the secondary market, and there are seats in just about every section, including the luxury suites and Club Hall of Fame level. Club Mezzanine seats are selling for $500+ as fans try to get the best view of all the action.

The Cowboys have an early Sunday game against the Seahawks on November 1. Make sure to go to the early church service if possible, because kickoff is at noon. Tickets are plentiful on the secondary market, from $60 nosebleed seats all the way up to 20-seat luxury boxes @ $1,000+ per seat. Club Hall of Fame tickets at or near the 50 yard line are being sold in the $500 range, which isn’t bad considering you’ll be close enough to yell instructions to Tony Romo. Remember when buying tickets at this level that sections C106 – C114 are the Cowboys side, while the C130’s are the visitor side, not that all you Cowboys fans didn’t already know that.

After spending nearly a month on the road, the Cowboys finally return to the friendly confines of their new stadium to play the Vick-less Falcons on October 25. Tickets for this game have been selling strong on the secondary market, but you can still find seats for under $75, which is something I never would have dreamed I’d be writing just a year ago when everyone was talking about the price tag on this modern wonder of the world stadium. If you really want to splurge, I found one luxury suite for sale in the 522 section that includes 20 tickets and 4 parking passes for about $23,000. Some real nice Club Hall of Fame level seats are going for under $1,000 apiece.

The Panthers will get their first look at the Cowboys news stadium on September 28. Apparently the NFL has decided the new stadium should be showcased in nationally-televised night games, because this is a Monday Night game. The first game at the new stadium the previous week on September 20 was a Sunday night game. Cowboys fans attending this game won’t need a television to see the action on the field. Even in the nosebleed seats, they’ll still be able to get a clear view of every play on the 60-yard long television screen that spans half the playing field.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the better part of the last decade, let me inform everyone that the Cowboys are moving into a new stadium this year. This stadium is the most expensive ever built, to my knowledge, and it shall be declared the 9th Wonder of the World. To christen the new stadium, the Cowboys will make the New York Giants their sacrificial lamb on September 20. This will be the first regular season Cowboys game at the new stadium, and I think it’s safe to say it’s going to be a sell-out with millions more watching on television back home. Surprisingly, you can still find tickets for this game on the secondary market for reasonable prices. I’ve found some for under $100 a ticket, but that could change if you wait until September to buy them. One thing is for sure: these tickets are going to get hotter, not colder.
