Rams-Cowboys approaching record 90K tickets sold

Football returns to Los Angeles on Saturday night, and if anyone was questioning whether Angelenos cared, try purchasing a ticket. There aren't many left.

The Rams announced ahead of their historic preseason tilt with the Cowboys that they are approaching selling 90,000 tickets for Saturday's game. If and when that number is reached, Saturday's contest will be the most attended NFL preseason game in American history.

The demand was so high for tickets to the Cowboys game -- the first NFL game in L.A. since 1994 -- and to the Seahawks home opener that the Rams decided to make more seats available in areas of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum they originally planned not to sell.

The largest crowd to watch any NFL game was 112,376 in a preseason matchup between the Cowboys and Houston Oilers in Mexico City in 1994.
