From the enemy:


Unless this one is a blowout in Dallas’ favor, it seems pointless to take the over. Prior to Week 1’s win, Philly hadn’t scored more than 30 points since the regular-season finale versus New York in 2019.

Can Philly score versus the Cowboys? Can they buck the trend and beat Dallas in AT&T stadium? Right now, it’s difficult to imagine that they’ll be able to keep pace in s scoring contest. We’ll soon find out, but they’ve lost their last three games at AT&T Stadium.




Will be calling the game. Very excited to hear Eli's take on our teams.

Already know what Eagles fans be like:

Including: “F*** Dallas”


1 - DeSean Jackson: “F*** Dallas. We hate Dallas.”

This is straight up catnip (bird seed?) for Eagles fans. “F*** Dallas” is basically every first comment on every article to ever exist on this website. Therefore, I think it’s safe to say DeSean reads BGN.


^^^^^That episode is amazing and I suggest everyone with a vested interest in either the Cowboys or Eagles to watch it.

It feels like our injuries are up *a lot* under McCarthy. As far as I know tell our strength and conditioning team is the same, so it has to just be unlucky. 

It's just odd, especially after the amount of injuries we were hit with last year. Typically it's an ebb and flow kinda thing.
