With the NFL’s full schedule set to be released Thursday, it’s time to analyze the travel habits of the Dallas Cowboys.
Bill Speros of Bookies.com broke down how many miles each team will travel throughout the new campaign, which features a new slate of international games and a new Black Friday matchup. According to Speros, the Cowboys will travel 22,620 miles.
That figure puts the Dallas franchise right outside the projected top 10 in total mileage, sitting one spot behind the New England Patriots (23,299). The Cowboys will average 2,513.33 miles per road trip and will experience 22 time zone changes. For comparison’s sake, five of the Cowboys’ 2023-24 opponents are in the top 5 for total mileage.
Seattle leads all NFL teams (31,600 miles), with San Francisco coming in second (29,958). Miami is in third on the list (27,110), the Los Angeles Rams (26,332) and the Los Angeles Chargers (26,102) round out the top 5. The Seahawks and Rams are scheduled to make trips to AT&T Stadium, while the Cowboys will visit the Dolphins, 49ers and Chargers.
Some of Miami’s travel mileage will come from its overseas visit to Frankfurt, Germany, where it’ll face the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 5.
The Cowboys are set to play nine games on the road and host eight at AT&T Stadium. Their schedule will include a heavy presence of AFC East and NFC West teams, highlighted by a rematch of the 2023 NFC divisional round showdown with the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara, California. The Aaron Rodgers-led New York Jets will be among the teams making the trip to Arlington in the fall.
Seven of the teams the Cowboys will face in the upcoming campaign made playoff appearances in the 2022-23 season.
