The Alabama Crimson Tide have won more games this season in AT&T Stadium than the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys have in their $1.2 billion showplace.
Dallas goes into its regular-season final Sunday against Washington with a six-game home losing streak. The Cowboys rallied to beat the New York Giants 27-26 in the regular season opener Sept. 13, but have lost their last six at home by an average of 11 points.

No. 2 Alabama opened the season with a 35-17 victory over Wisconsin on Labor Day weekend at AT&T Stadium. The Crimson Tide also won there on New Year’s Eve a few days ago, beating Michigan State 38-0 in the Cotton Bowl _ a national semifinal game to advance to play No. 1 Clemson in the College Football Playoff national championship game Jan. 11 in Arizona.

The Cowboys did win a preseason game at home, but those games don’t really count.
