Romo calls out Cowboys fans after Texans fans invade AT&T Stadium

Sunday October 5th, 2014

Houston Texans fans invaded the Dallas Cowboys' stadium on Sunday and made it look like a home game. 

"We played on the road today in that football game," Tony Romo said after the game. "We need to do a better job as a fan base."

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said the Texans fans were so loud, Dallas had to go to a silent snap count at times, per Cowboys beat writer Rowan Kavner.

The idea of road fans coming to AT&T Stadium to make it their own is becoming somewhat of a trend. The 49ers fans did it for their Week 1 game in Dallas, and San Francisco won 28-17.

This time against Houston, Dallas won after Dan Bailey kicked a 49-yard field goal in overtime. It was the Cowboys' first overtime game of the season. 

The Cowboys next play at home on Oct. 19 against the New York Giants.  

Dallas is 4-1 on the season and tied with Philadelphia for first place in the NFC East.
