The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football franchise that plays in the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL). They are headquartered in Valley Ranch in Irving, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. The team plays its home games at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, within the Dallas–Fort Worth metropolitan area, which finished construction in time for the 2009 season.
The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a disappointing 2012 NFL season. With the new Tony Romo contract in the off season and his new responsibilities given to him, the Dallas Cowboys hope to be a NFL playoff team in 2013.
