As usual, a Philadelphia Eagles and Cowboys game is littered with storylines.
Well, here we go again. Every single year, it’s the same thing. The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys meet twice annually for a football game. The first of these two meetings in 2020 has a lot of similarities with the first game they played in 2019. The venue is different, but there are similarities.
In 2019, the theory was these were the two best teams in the NFC East and their games versus one another would decide the division crown. When 2020’s NFL season began, these were again seen as the two best teams in the NFC East. Their first game is scheduled for primetime on Sunday Night Football. Does that sound familiar?
Dallas blew the ‘Birds’ out by 27 points in AT&T Stadium. This time around, Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, and Michelle Tafoya are hanging out at Lincoln Financial Field. The Philadelphia Eagles are heavy favorites in Week 8 and with no Dak Prescott, no energy from a flailing Cowboys offense, and a defense that has seemingly turned on their coaches, this time, it could be Dallas that’s on the wrong side of a blowout victory. That’s why they play the games though, isn’t it?
This one’s loaded with storylines. Let’s count down five of the most interesting.
