The rivalry between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys is one of the most intense in football, full of amazing moments on both sides. Things have really heated up in the last couple of seasons as well, now that they're the only real contenders in the NFC East.

The Eagles have more playoff wins in the last three seasons than the Cowboys do in the last 23 seasons (courtesy of Reddit user u/coolmon).

The Eagles have won four playoffs games in the last three seasons — one in 2018 and three in their 2017 Super Bowl run. The Cowboys have won just one in that time (2018).

Extending our view back to the last 23 years, the Cowboys have just two more playoffs wins — giving them a grand total of three dating back to the 1997 season. They haven't made it past the Divisional Round once in those 23 years, while the Eagles have made the NFC Championship game six times.

The regular season series between these two is expected to be close in 2020. On FanDuel Sportsbook, the Eagles are 3-point favorites for the game in Philly, while the Cowboys are 3-point favorites for the game in Dallas.
