3 Eagles Who Have Killed the Cowboys the Most
The NFC East has always been filled with tense rivalries, but in recent years the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys has become the big one. The fight for the No. 1 spot in the division will be a tense race between those two in 2020, according to the odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Rivalries like this bring out the best in some players, and that's certainly the case for these three Philadelphia Eagles players.
1. DeSean Jackson, WR
Since he was drafted in 2008, no player has more receiving yards against the Cowboys than DeSean Jackson. It's not even close, either, as Jackson has 1,161, while the second-highest total in that time is just 736. It's not just that Jackson has played the Cowboys a ton, either. He has averaged 10.6 yards per target against Dallas, which is well above his career average of 9.8.
2. Brandon Graham, DE
Brandon Graham has met with the Cowboys 15 times in his career, racking up 7.0 sacks, 17 quarterback hits and 12 tackles for loss. Taking on Dallas seems to bring out Graham's best work, as he's racked up all three of those stats at rates above his career averages.
3. Nigel Bradham, LB
Nigel Bradham doesn't have as much experience as those first two, with six games played against the Cowboys since joining the Eagles in 2016. He's made the most of those six, though, racking up 47 total tackles. That includes 29 solo tackles. One of the best performances of his career came against the Cowboys in 2018, when he matched his career-best mark with 14 combined tackles in Week 14.
