Tough Scene

Cowboys fans stampeding into the stadium two hours early to watch their team score three points is, objectively, LOL funny

September 12, 2022

As far as opening Sundays go, it couldn't possibly have gotten much worse for the Dallas Cowboys. Not only did they lose their home opener, 19-3, to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the other three NFC East teams all won their openers, putting them in solo possession of dead effing last. On top of that, quarterback Dak Prescott got hurt yet again, this time suffering an injury to his throwing hand that could see him miss six-to-eight weeks.

In Big D, the panic button is being smashed on a regular basis even when the team is winning, but it's essentially being hammered to bits after the Sunday night debacle. Next up are the Cincinnati Bengals, who will be out for blood after a stunning opening loss at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Then comes the 1-0 New York Giants at MetLife, then the Washington Commanders, L.A. Rams and Philadelphia Eagles. It's not out of the realm of possibility to suggest they could be 0-6 heading into Week 7, at which point it would be shocking if Mike McCarthy were still the head coach. 

Objectively speaking, they are in deep, deep you know what right now. Also objectively speaking, the Cowboys fans lining up outside of AT&T Stadium two hours before kickoff, and then stampeding into the game to watch their offense score three points, is L(augh)-O(ut)-L(oud) funny:

What really makes this funny is that the people are running in for the "standing-room only" section of AT&T Stadium, meaning they waited outside just to run in and grab a spot TWO hours before the game, a spot that doesn't actually have a seat. These people waited all off-season for this, only for their franchise quarterback to go down after mustering up three whole points. Tough, tough scene. 

Take it away, Stephen A.!

Oh, by the way, as The Ringer's Kevin Clark was first to point out on Sunday night, them Cowboys are in primetime four more times this season, which obviously doesn't include Thanksgiving. Are we living in a world where a Week 6 game between the Cowboys and the Eagles could get flexed out of Sunday Night Football? Considering there are matchups like Chiefs-Bills, Saints-Bengals and Vikings-Dolphins that same week, it's not out of the question.
