Found October 27, 2011 on The Landry Hat:
 Despite a short stint in Dallas, he will always be remembered for running up the score.While the Dallas Cowboys versus the Washington Redskins used to be a marquee rivalry, it is arguable that the Cowboys and Eagles has become the biggest rivalry in the NFC East. According to a recent Landry Hat poll, the Philadelphia Eagles are the team most disliked by Dallas Cowboy fans. I, for one, will never forget that time in 1987 when Randall Cunningham, despite leading 30-20 with less than a minute to play, faked a third consecutive kneel-down and instead threw a touchdown pass.  For a really intense rivalry to thrive, the antagonism has to go both ways.  Thankfully, I am sure that the fans in Philly have a similar dislike for the Boys (why else would they wildly cheer when Michael Irvin was injured?)Given the magnitude of this rivalry, I am going to break with tradition and try to write a 3-part preview this week instead of my normal 2-part series.

Should Cowboys Approach Philly As "Just Another Game"?

There doesn’t seem to be a disagreement in the Cowboys locker room over whether or not the Eagles game is a big game. It is. That’s accepted.
