NFL News And Updates: Dallas Cowboys Going Back To UK?
The Dallas Cowboys played another game during the Thanksgiving celebration and the teams' fan did not get disappointed.
The Cowboys faced the Washington Redskins last night at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Their fans were treated to a night of fun after the Cowboys ruled the first half of the game having scored 7-0 in the first quarter and 10-6 in the second.
However, both teams did not score in the third quarter and despite the Redskins effort to make a lead in the fourth quarter with 20-14, it was not enough to beat the home team. The fans cheered as the game ended in 31 to 26 in favor of the Cowboys.
The team has been in the league for 56 years and in 2014, they had a monumental leap as they played the game against the Jacksonville in London, England.
Now, there is news saying that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is open to playing a game in the UK as he is seeing a lot of people supporting the team and the league in London.
Sky Sports reported that according to Jones "We certainly are open to playing (in the UK). There are a lot of clubs who enjoy going to the UK to play and so we'll take our turn when we come. We are well aware of the fan base we've got in the UK."
However, it will not be that easy as there are also other teams in the league who want to play in Great Britain.
The NFL International Series has always been played at Wembley but changes were made recently that teams were also able to play in Mexico City and Twickenham. For Jones, UK would be a good spot for them. He said, "I am so proud of the interest and the gaining in the interest that we are having in the UK for our sport."
