    Dallas is the ultimate road team in the NFC over the past four years. And it’s not even close!

    Even including the down 2015 season...nobody in the NFC has won more road games than Dallas. The Cowboys have piled up an absolutely golden 23-9 record in roadies spanning ‘14, ‘15, ‘16, and ‘17.

    To put that in perspective...that’s a winning percentage that gets you in the playoffs every season. All on the road while sleeping in hotels and facing a wall of noise.

    How does this road record stack up?
    #1 Dallas: 23-9
    #2 Atlanta: 18-14

    Quite Simply...they’ve been killing it.

    More thoughts...and a very controversial question coming in a bit...

    Perhaps they could petition the league to let the No. 1 seed play an away game in the playoffs

    Too many distractions at home?

    The problem is the 23rd best home record in the past 4 years (11th in the NFC).

    That's the same since the new stadium opened - 23rd best home record in the past 9 years also.

    They're not good on the road, they've just played crappy teams.

    2014
    Titans 2-14
    Rams 6-10
    Seattle 12-4
    Jacksonville 3-13
    Giants 6-10
    Bears 5-11
    Eagles 10-6
    Redskins 4-12

    2015
    Eagles 7-9
    Dolphins 6-10
    Redskins 9-7

    2016
    Redskins 8-7-1
    49ers 2-14
    Packers 10-6
    Browns 1-15
    Steelers 11-5
    Vikings 8-8

    2017
    Cardinals 8-8
    49ers 6-10
    Redskins 7-9
    Giants 3-13
    Raiders 6-10
    Eagles 13-3

    They have 7 road wins against teams that finished with a winning record, one of those was the 8-7-1 Skins and another was the Eagles with all of their starters benched in a meaningless week 17 game. There are 3 good wins on this list - Seattle, GB, and Pitt.

    How do the Cowboys compare to their divisional rivals when playing on the road, in past 4 years?

    Dallas, 23-9
    Eagles, 15-17
    Giants, 11-21
    Redskins, 10-21-1

    That my friends is sheer domination.


    The problem of course is that Dallas hasn’t held serve with it’s home games. 15-17 over that same 4-year span.

    Beating Steelers on the road in ‘16, Super Bowl ‘Hawks in ‘14, Vikes in Minn, playoff Packers in Green Bay.... yeah, right. We’re just “lucky”

    There's no question that they are a better road team - or a dismal home team depending on how you choose to look at it.

    (Sticking with the same time frame as the OP)
    Their winning percentage as a road underdog (53.3%) is almost as high as their winning percentage as a home favorite (56.5%).

    As a road favorite they are 82.3% and as a home underdog they are only 27.3%.

    Only team better as a road favorite is Houston who is 100% (4-0), while the Cowboys 82.3% is for 17 games.

    Because our house is a circus. It’s like we have no home games or home field advantage.

    That’s a fact, it seems like our road games are really home games with as many fans that go, home games always has the visiting teams with more fans (at least it sounds like it on TV)

    I’ve been to a number of home Cowboys games in Irving. Wasn’t loud there either.

    Are we all in agreement that there is such a thing in football as a 12th man? Can we all agree that fan involvement and the noise and energy they produce can impact games?

    Can we agree on that?

    Over 4 years I am gonna guess that most teams faced a relatively similar schedule.

    I don't think we've squeezed all the controversy out of your non-controversial question yet. :D

    Another indicator as to why we haven’t advanced past the NFC semis in the postseason during the Garrett era.

    Most of the above-quoted teams aren’t who we would’ve ended up facing in the playoffs, following a season when those teams were mediocre/bad and where we happened to beat those teams on the road during the regular season.

    However...when we DO face a good team in the playoffs; a team who we may have previously beaten in the regular season?

    See: 2016 GB Packers
