The Green Bay Packers have won a big game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, they just weren’t playing the Dallas Cowboys.
Super Bowl XLV in 2011 was held at then-named Cowboys Stadium, with the Packers defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 in the first Super Bowl held in Dallas.
With that past experience on his mind, Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy had some valuable advice in mind to give his players this week.
McCarthy says he will remind players not to pay attention to video board at Jerry-world. Found himself doing that at Super Bowl vs. Pitt.

The video board at AT&T Stadium can be a distraction. It’s a monstrosity over the field and spectators often spend time watching the video board rather than the live play in front of them.
That’s all fine and good for the fans, but for a coach or player it could be difficult to ignore.
