The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Texas to face a division rival in Week 3.

Attention Philadelphia Eagles fans, Dallas week, is here. It’s that time of year where the hatred for the Dallas Cowboys starts to bubble up inside every Birds fan. Unfortunately, this will be the 125th time these two historical rivals have faced the series lead belonging to ‘Dem Boys’ by a 70-54 margin.

Let’s all be honest. It does not matter what the national media or other NFL fans may think. This is the most heated rivalry in the league, period, even more so than Eagles versus Giants.  This type of rivalry will ensure possible friendships end or never happen. It can also divide households, and possibly, even lead to parents disowning their children. Yes, the hatred runs that deep.

Over the course of the past few seasons, removing last year, these two teams have been battling back and forth for the NFC East’s crown. Some of the best games the entire league has seen have come from this rivalry. This isn’t a one-sided affair. Emotions run hot on both sides every time these two franchises meet, and this time, in Week 3, it isn’t any different.

Both of these teams will be entering this match up with the same records and the same mentality of this game being a must-win. They will also be entering this game with some of their star players back in action and some of their star players sidelined. Are you not fired up yet?

Get your pulse checked if you aren’t. It’s Dallas Week, and Philly fans have some questions that need answering. Here are three of the most obvious.
