FRISCO – Such are the times: Cowboys-ex-recipient Dez Bryant is a New Orleans Saint and it’s Amari Cooper and Golden Tate who highlight the next part of the Dallas-Philadelphia rivalry on Sunday night.
The recipients were included in the NFC East dispute before the trading deadline, as both teams fail to capitalize on a mediocre split.
“I think it’s someone’s game, truly,” said Eagles coach Doug Pederson this week.
Washington stands at the top of 5 -3, but still plays Philadelphia twice. The eagles, yes, the defending world champions, are 4-4, come true and try to be the first repetition champion in the division since 2004.
Dallas at. 3-5 will have a harder time to convince that it is still in the mix with a third straight loss Sunday. With a victory it is bound with Philly in the stakes and holds the tiebreaker. A defeat fights them two games back from the eagles, in front of only the Little New York Giants.
This is the background that Cooper and Tate introduced in the long-run feud.
“They say it’s a huge rivalry,” said Cooper, who had five catches for 58 meters and a touchdown in his Cowboys debut on Monday’s loss to Tennessee. “Of course, I do not know too much about that. But the guys are definitely pumped up. They say there will be crazy there in Philly when they play the cowboys. “
Tate, who has a story with Dallas, could not think of this week’s name in the arena where he plays his first game as an eagle But he is already well-behaved in Dallas-Philly Hat. He said that his social media make it clear that the fans ̵

“It will be a good one game, “Tate told reporters.” I’m glad my first game will be at home against such an intense opponent. “
Cowboys who drive back Ezekiel Elliott call the game a “ must win “is no lip service.
The Cowboys have lost all four previous road games this season. They are now entering a crucial five-game stretch: in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Washington, New Orleans, Against Philly.
A loss sunday may be tip point. And for d The positive thoughts out there might be a turning point. Head coach Jason Garrett and the staff are now likely to coach for their jobs.
The typical stream of trash has come out of Philly this week, even though the cowboys have been more low.
“Of course I do not like the cowboys,” veteran eagles left thank Jason Peters told reporters. “It’s just the arrogance. The organization.” America’s Team. “Right now they do not win. Let’s see how many people jump off their bandwagon.”
Cowboy defensive line champion Tyrone Crawford did not try to give Eagles fans too much credit.
“They have fans who want to throw things for you and dig up information about you … It will be nice out there.
” It will be quite chippy. … I have seen the eagles too many times … and I’m just ready to come after that again. Every time I’ve played the eagles I’ve talked a lot of crap and just tried to break as many heads as I can. “
Rivalry now extends to the Cooper and Tate industry: Who got a better deal? Dallas gave up his 2019 first round draft game to get him from Oakland. Philly was also interested in Cooper, but for a second round. He got Tate by giving a third round pick to Detroit.
Cooper is 24, and is expected to write a long-term extension with Cowboys. Tate is 30 and may end up being an eight-game league because his contract ends after this season. Both have No. 19 with their new teams.
The Cowboys have been pleased with how fast Cooper has passed since they secured him on October 22, especially because they have to move him around the field to find ways to kick the terrible crime .
“He never ceases to show the explosiveness and his ability to use his combination of speed and speed. He is a tough protection, “said Dallas Line offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.
Tates had some memorable moments against the cowboys in his nine-year career, including fining a blind blood on line-backer Sean Lee when he was with Seattle in 2012.
Much later, in week 4 this season, he took eight pass on eight goals, a total of 132 meters and touchdowns of 45 and 38 meters in a Detroit loss. Hard to deal with after a catch, Tate fought Dallas defender of high-
He is almost a finished villain for the last part of rivalry, as both teams manage for higher land.
“We have to prepare for everything and be on the toes and hope not to let it happen again,” said Dallas Cornerback Chidobe Awuzie about Tate. “It’s probably why the Eagles got him, honestly, they know we do not like him. … We will prepare our best way. There is no extra or nothing less. … When you love this game, you are approaching everything like being the hardest challenge, as if it were Super Bowl. We will approach this game as it is Super Bowl. “
