Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni got in the rivalry spirit this week, sporting a “Beat Dallas” shirt while speaking to reporters.
The Eagles are set to play the Cowboys in Dallas on Monday night.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones shared his thoughts on the Eagles head coach’s T-shirt choice. Jones respected the move.
“Well listen, I’ve had enough of…over the years Philadelphia, they take such pride in creating slogans and creating different types of expressions,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan (Dallas) Friday, per CBS Sports. “My hero is Drew Pearson for standing up there in Philadelphia and just putting it on them in terms of what’s there.
“Make no mistake about it. That inspires their fan base. It probably inspires their players. There’s no rougher place to play in the whole country than Philadelphia. No question, they’re a great rival.”
The Cowboys and the Eagles have played some great rivalry games over the years. Perhaps we’ll get another one on Monday night.
Dallas and Philadelphia are set to kick off at 8:30 p.m. E.T.
The game will air on ESPN.
