The Dallas Cowboys, America's Team

The Dallas Cowboys are one of the professional teams playing in the NFL under the league's National Football Conference (NFC) East division. Currently based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, the Cowboys are currently headquartered in Frisco and its home games are usually hosted at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington - all in The Lone Star state.

According to the NFL website, the so-called America's Team first joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1960. Since then, The Dallas Cowboys have risen to be one of the most bankable franchises, posting a streak of 190 consecutive regular and post-season games, both home and away, all being sold-out events starting in 2002.

Additionally, The Cowboys have made eight Super Bowl appearances, making it second behind the New England Patriots making it to the Super Bowl eleven times. Similarly, their eight Super Bowl appearances mean that The Dallas Cowboys have the most NFC championships, the most in the conference. Also, they have won five out of their eight Super Bowl matches, tied with their NFC rivals the San Francisco 49ers.

By 2015, The Dallas Cowboys was recognized by Forbes as being the "most valuable sports team" in the world, with the franchise being valued at $4 billion at the time.

Their nickname, "America's Team," came from the franchise's now-iconic 1978 highlight team. The highlight's narrator, sports announcer John Facenda, opens by describing the Cowboys as appearing on TV "so often that their faces are as familiar to the public as presidents and movie stars." He then introduced the Dallas Cowboys, "America's Team," and the name has stuck ever since.
