Passions run high anytime the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys meet on the football field. That was especially true under the bright lights of Week 6 Sunday Night Football, and with the Eagles trying to keep their perfect record intact.

That high intensity wasn't only for the players, but coaches and other team members alike. Just ask Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni, who was caught on camera with a very NSFW outburst.

Sirianni was asked about the outburst during postgame, and stepped up to defend the incident.

The comments help paint the picture of the leadership Sirianni bestows on his Eagles squad, and perhaps another reason this team is off to a 6-0 start. "I love these guys. This is my family. I've got a great family at home. But this is my other family," said Sirianni.

Sirianni alludes to his disdain for the "extracurricular activities," saying that he'll always "stick up for our guys."

The incident that set Sirianni off was a late fourth quarter scuffle between Cowboys defender Osa Odighizuwa and Jason Kelce. Odighizuwa ended up actually tackling Kelce to the ground and the sidelines erupted.

Like it or not, Sirianni doesn't seem to care. He's clearly more interesting in defending his players and walking out of Lincoln Financial Field with a hard-fought victory.

As it stands, the Eagles now hold the second-best odds (+550) to win Super Bowl 57 on FanDuel Sportsbook.
