DALLAS — A lawsuit has been filed accusing the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys and team owner Jerry Jones of deceiving hundreds of fans who bought Super Bowl tickets and had no seats, or who felt the seats were inadequate.

The federal lawsuit, filed in Dallas, alleges breach of contract, fraud and deceptive sales practices.

It was filed Tuesday on behalf of fans who were prevented from having seats at Sunday's game between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington because of a snafu over temporary bleachers, as well as some Cowboys season ticket-holders who say they wound up on folding chairs with obstructed views.

A Cowboys spokesman did not immediately return a call requesting comment Wednesday.

The Packers beat the Steelers 31-25.
