Cowboy Arrowhead Atmosphere: Loud and Expensive
FRISCO – The Dallas Cowboys bring hype, attention and high ticket prices to Kansas City during a possible Super Bowl preview against the Chiefs on Sunday. The challenges escalate for the Cowboys, who will try to slow quarterback Patrick Mahomes for the first time against Dallas while preparing for Chief Kingdom in famed Arrowhead Stadium.
Communication will be key for the Cowboys in their quest to end the Chiefs three-game winning streak. Hard to hear at Arrowhead is an issue Dallas braced for with some extra loud music in practice this week at Frisco.
âWhen we went to Minnesota it was around 120 decibels, where Arrowhead was at 140,â said coach Mike McCarthy. âSo that’s what we’re preparing for. It’s an incredible environment. “
Running back Ezekiel Elliott didn’t downplay the importance of being able to communicate in caucus with quarterback Dak Prescott.
“If it’s loud and I’m trying to tell you something, and you can’t hear me, and that’s the piece we’re playing, yeah, that’s a real (problem)”, said said Elliott. âIf I can’t hear (Prescott), that’s true because we have to figure out what our mission is. We have to understand what we’re doing.
Being part of the electric Sunday afternoon vibe comes at a steep price. The Cowboys-Chiefs game is the most expensive average ticket price ($ 493) to a game in Kansas City this season. It is also the fifth-highest for an NFL game in the league this season, according to a secondary outlet. TickPick.
What do you get when you mix two teams that are the favorites to win their respective divisions with two MVP caliber quarterbacks? A loud and costly Sunday confrontation.
