For the past few years, especially since the Brids won Superbowl 52, many fans think the long time Eagles-Cowboys rivalry is not as passionate as it once was. It was so bad years ago that at least one snow plow driver would purposely plow in any car displaying Cowboys logo. Shouts of “Dallas Sucks” seemed more common a decade or two ago.
So, this generations-long rivalry is not as strong as it once was….right? Not so says the Sporting News.
This week the website published an article listing the NFL’s Best Rivalries of 2019.
So…on with the countdown!
