ALL POSTS TAGGED "[dallas cowboys]"

On 2, on 2. Down. Set. Hut. Hut! Weeden drops back, has Watson over the middle, fires to the back of the end zone — TOUCHDOWN! That’s the sound of 9-year veteran Ben Watson catching his second touchdown of the afternoon on the road against the Dallas Cowboys in their 3-million-square-foot, $1.5 billion stadium.

But how did we get to this point? How did the Browns get to Dallas and what preparations had to be made in order for the game to be played? Find out tonight at 10|9c on an all-new episode of NFL Road Tested.

Before the game in Dallas, the Browns organization gets some free time during their much-needed bye week. Journey inside the life of an NFL player as we get an exclusive look at tight end Ben Watson, kicker Phil Dawson and other members of the team at home with their families.

When the bye week is complete, it’s back to business as usual. As practice begins on Wednesday, Simon Gelan, the operations manager, has already landed in Dallas to prepare every detail of the team’s visit. From planning meals to facilitating a stadium walkthrough, Simon works around the clock in the days leading up to the game to make sure everything goes off without a hitch.

Cowboys stadium also plays host to a high school football game on Saturday night, making the job of the equipment staff even tougher than most game days. After getting to stadium at 5 a.m. on Sunday morning, the staff works diligently to shine helmets, clean cleats and set up the lockers before the players arrive.

Will the staff be able to get everything together while operating on a tight schedule? Will the Browns shock the Cowboys and pull off a stunning upset? Catch an all-new episode of NFL Road Tested, tonight at 10|9c.

Giants Stadium

Take a few deep breaths — it’s finally here!! Tonight marks the start of the 2012-2013 NFL season, headlined by the defending Super Bowl champion NY Giants taking on “America’s Team,” the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

Not only is this game significant because it kicks off a new season, but tonight will be the first NFL regular season game to be played on a Wednesday in 64 years.

Last season ended on a sour note for the Cowboys, so tonight they’ll look to exact revenge on “Big Blue” to start the new season off right with a W. The Cowboys were eliminated from post-season play when they lost the final game of the regular season to the NY Giants, who went on a remarkable run to win the Super Bowl.

Gear up for tonight by touring some of the Best NFL Stadiums and see what a super fan really looks like with our photos of Extreme NFL Tailgating.
