    Cowboys vs. Eagles: NFL Rivalry Returns This Monday Night

    In the NFL, the is notorious for its heated rivalries. Still, nothing compares to the hysterics surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles and “” the . In light of the upcoming Monday Night Football game between the two, let’s the bitter and the next battle in store.

    The and Washington Football Team kickstarted the first NFL 2021/22 East matchup. However, the control of the division will be handed to whichever team walks out successful this Monday Night, when the Dallas Cowboys play host to their long-term rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles, in Arlington.

    Both teams have begun their season splitting results with a 1-1 record, most recently with Dallas defeating the Chargers and the Eagles losing to the 49ers. This time last year, newly appointed Dallas started his season losing the first season game to come back and defeat the Eagles. Although, it was a tremendous disappointment for all teams in the NFC East during 2020/21. Philadelphia replaced their -winning head coach for this season, and Nick Sirianni will be looking to gain trust from the fans by defeating their divisional foes this Monday.

    The Most Bitter Rivalry in NFL History

    During the 1970s, when the Cowboys became “America’s team”, they consistently won games in prolific fashion, and hammering the Eagles was a regular occurrence. But the dark side of football is often pointed toward Philadelphia fans whose lack of on-field excellence has been made up with hostility.

    The Eagles' reputation has suffered, with a of violence and backlash towards other NFL fans, primarily those who support the Dallas Cowboys. One distasteful instance came when Eagles fans celebrated in cheer as Cowboys legend was removed from the game following a career-threatening neck .

    In other instances that fuelled the rivalry, the infamous Bounty Bowl in 1989 ended with Cowboys accusing the Eagles head coach of paying players to injure Cowboys players. The Eagles entered the second meeting with the Cowboys in December of that year and won again. This didn’t prevent Philadelphia fans from launching snow, ice, and various objects at Cowboys players and coaches.

    Eagles supporters show a distinctive hatred for Cowboys fans; in some instances, I believe the fanbase would instead give up the Super Bowl than a loss to Dallas. I doubt the echoing “Dallas Sucks” will ever separate itself from the mouths of Eagles fans.

    Cowboys vs. Eagles: The Numbers

    The Dallas Cowboys have lifted five Super Bowl trophies throughout the last century, and the Eagles have just one Super Bowl victory. However, Dallas has failed to progress into an NFC Championship playoff game in over 25 years. Since then, the Eagles have advanced to the Super Bowl on two occasions, lifting the trophy in 2018.

    In overall statistics, Dallas is leading the rivalry 70-54, and the NFL betting lines favor the Cowboys to win this Monday’s meeting. It’s been a while, but “America’s Team” has the attention on them following a feature on HBO’s “” television show.

    Cowboys vs. Eagles: Monday Night Football Prediction

    Rollercoaster results have been the story for both teams. The Cowboys multiple playoff wins and the Eagles lifting the Super Bowl haven’t been sustainable in form, as neither side has managed to repeat as a division champion since 2004.

    Monday’s game will likely determine the division winner, as the NFC East matchups winner usually decides the future leader. Both teams realize this early season win will leave the loser in a position of playing catch up.

    With that said, it’s hard to give the Eagles a winning chance. Injury concerns are already plaguing the Eagles , who will struggle versus & gang. The offensive head-to-head is too big, and we should anticipate the Cowboys exposing this factor early.

    and had a great game last week, but Eagles is out for the year. A massive blow to the Eagles is coming at the worst time against a Cowboys team with evidential aerial assaults and an on-pitch groove that clicked into place last week.

    In defense, the Cowboys do have work remaining, but they continue to get the job done. Turnovers define establishing your own luck, and that’s precisely what they’ve done. The secondary is playing strategic, and there’s a lot of positives about this group’s confidence.

    The defense will allow one or two breaks, but I believe they’ll give enough to keep this game winnable for the Cowboys' .

    No matter what the result ends in, the Cowboys and Eagles are a game that America will be tuning in to witness. The game could stay tight in the first half, but I predict the Cowboys will leave one step ahead in the NFC East title race.
