  • Turnstile Tracker: New Cowboys Stadium Provides Boost

    The Cowboys' new stadium in Arlington is helping the NFC to a slight uptick in average attendance through Week Six this season, as Dallas is up 55% at home compared to the same period last year. The Panthers, 49ers and Falcons are also seeing decent gains at home this season. The Lions are seeing the sharpest drop among NFC teams to date, down 13% at Ford Field. The team's three home games have only filled the venue to 80% capacity. The chart below lists team-by-team attendance for the NFC through Week Six, with comparisons to the same period a year ago.
