The Dallas Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3 and the rivalry is back. On Thursday, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni rocked a shirt that read “Beat Dallas” ahead of their divisional matchup this weekend.

Yeah, it is a huge rivalry and Sirianni understands that already. Later on Thursday, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was asked about the clothing choice of the Eagles head coach and if Mike McCarthy should fire back and do the same.
According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Elliott wasn't too concerned about that.
Should Mike McCarthy wear a T-shirt to his news conference tomorrow that says, Beat the Eagles?

Just a little intra-divisional fun between the two rivals who are likely headed for a clash atop the NFC East once again, especially with the disappointing play of the New York Giants and the injuries to the Washington Football Team.
The Cowboys just won a gritty game against the Los Angeles Chargers and are looking to go to 2-1 on the year, and the Eagles flopped hard against the San Francisco 49ers as their offense just stalled against a tough defensive group.
The rivalry is back and should be a good one between the Eagles and Cowboys with Dak Prescott and Jalen Hurts dueling it out. Sit back and get your popcorn ready.
