The New York Giants beat the Dallas Cowboys last night in front of a record crowd of 105, 121 fans which broke the NFL’s previous record of just over 103, 000.
Everyone was in attendance from George Bush, John Madden and LeBron James to former Cowboy legends Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin.
From USA Today:
Lawrence Tines made it seem like the crowd could’ve been 10,000 when he punched through a 37-yard field with no time left to silence the stadium and leave Jerry Jones’ head shaking.
“Everybody makes a big deal because we spoiled their little party,” Giants’ defensive end Justin Tuck said on Yahoo! Sports. “Every other game we play in the NFC East will be just as big.”
This wasn’t the biggest game of the year, though that’s probably the way the Cowboys wanted it to appear. Far from it. Despite an electric atmosphere, worshipping Cowboys owner Jones for his Texas-sized credit card, all the dust eventually settled and what was left was just another divisional game that both teams needed to have. Probably more-so for the Cowboys in their first game inside the $1.15 billion stadium.
