The Kansas City Chiefs are the reigning Super Bowl Champions and therefore kings of the NFL mountain. There is one thing that the Chiefs did not reign supreme in throughout the 2019 season, though. We’re talking about the most elite title that a football team can achieve. In fact, we are talking about something so prestigious that it doesn’t need a game played in front of half the world to celebrate it. What is it, you ask? Leading the NFL in average attendance of course!

Despite different people trying to assign the nickname to other squads over the course of the last couple of decades there will always be only one America’s Team - the Dallas Cowboys. Jerry Jones saw his club fall well short of expectations in 2019 but the good news is that they did so in front of more people (on average) than anyone else. The Dallas Cowboys led the NFL in average attendance last season.

Dallas entered the 2019 season with a playoff win the year prior and division title to defend. They ultimately went 5-3 at AT&T Stadium last season (the wins came against the NFC East, Los Angeles Rams, and Miami Dolphins) which isn’t terrible, but coupled with their poor performances on the road was too much to overcome.

People often say that they are going to abstain from the Cowboys until they do something significant (they haven’t won a Super Bowl since the Tennessee Titans were the Houston Oilers) but results show that the overwhelming majority of folks do not feel this way. Win, lose, or draw there are people that are fascinated with the Dallas Cowboys.

America’s Team.
