ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — On a night meant for showing off their team and their stadium, the Dallas Cowboys provided a bit more excitement than intended Thursday night.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jimmy Johnson loves the video boards at Cowboys Stadium right where they are.
Johnson was in the $1.15 billion new home of his former team in June for the first event, a concert featuring George Strait and Reba McEntire, and couldn't take his eyes off the screens. He returned Thursday to film some commercials and still thinks they're just fine, even if a punt banged off them during a preseason game against Tennessee last weekend.
