Dallas Cowboys

Great Moments In Cowboys-Eagles History: Vol. 81

Sunday night marks the first Cowboys/Eagles battle of the season, which is the Philadelphia sports equivalent of the Civil War.

Dallas represents everything Eagles fans loathe; arrogance, entitlement, and a white collar mentality with achieved success and subsequently rubbing everyone’s nose in it.

Also, when the Cowboys started winning Super Bowls, a slow infiltration of Dallas fans took hold in the Delaware Valley, which still infuriates Birds fans.

Thus, Sunday night should be filled with parking lot brawls and fights in the stands between Cowboys and Eagles fans.

Let’s go back to 2006 when Terrell Owens made his triumphant return to Philadelphia after the Eagles dumped him following the ’05 season after two tumultuous seasons.

Tony Romo (then a backup) watched from the sideline as Cowboys starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe threw a game-sealing interception, which Eagles cornerback Lito Sheppard happily returned 102 yards for six.

Eagles 38, Cowboys 24.
