Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles stars begin trash talk

Football News

Thanksgiving has come and gone and we were treated to a great feast of football on a very important day in the NFL season.

The biggest story however surely comes from Dallas where the Cowboys lost heavily at home to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The star man for the Eagles was Runningback LeSean McCoy who was instrumental in the Philadelphia victory.

But whilst McCoy had a night to shout about, the Cowboys Wide Receiver Dez Bryant had a night not worth remembering.

Bryant had just 73 receiving yards from four receptions and failed to get a touchdown in a game where Dallas really struggled.


Philadelphia ran out 33-10 winners and it hasn't taken long for the two players to be mixed into a psychological battle.

McCoy fired the first shot after he scored his touchdown in the game, the Eagles Runningback imitated the trademark celebration often employed by Bryant himself.

Perhaps seen as a move which poked the sleeping giants, the Cowboys Receiver has now spoken out after the loss.

"They were being kinda cheap, that's another story" - Dez Bryant on the Philadelphia Eagles performance

So with Bryant labelling the 9-3 Eagles as 'cheap' and McCoy firing a joking shot at Bryant, the exchange between these two offensive weapons will surely only intensify over the coming weeks.

Eagles and Cowboys on a collision course

Despite the Eagles big win over the Cowboys on Thursday, the two teams are not done with each other yet.

Despite what is surely going to be a war of words between Bryant and McCoy, the two are set to clash one more time.

The two frontrunners in the NFC East both have a game to think about and then they will be face to face once again.

With the Eagles playing host to the Seattle Seahawks and the Cowboys visiting the Chicago Bears, one team should have it easier.

The Eagles now stand at 9-3 whilst the Cowboys fall to 8-4 but with the Seahawks looking back to their old selves tonight against the San Francisco 49ers who knows how these teams will line up in two weeks.

A win for Dallas and Seattle next week will see the Cowboys and the Eagles once again clash on the same record as the race for the post-season bye week continues.
