Does having more of the opposing team's fans at a football game, like the recent Cowboys vs. 49ers game, affect how the home team plays?

  • The Loss of Home Field Advantage at Home is Worse

    Nothing is more disheartening to a home team than to have less support than expected in their own home stadium. It is even worse for a team like the Cowboys, who are used to having significant support on the road as well as at home.

  • Fans Cheer for Jerseys, Players Play for Money

    The constant movement of players from team to team in the NFL reinforces the notion that most players have little loyalty to the city they play in or for the fans that cheer them. That a game might be attended by a large number of the opposing teams fans has little bearing on the ability of the players to execute the game plan they spend countless hours practicing.
