For a real life interpretation of the AMC acclaimed series The Walking Dead tune in to the Cowboys/Eagles game on Sunday at 4:25ET. Both teams resemble the cast of the television series and the scenarios they have found themselves in. As if the Cowboys and Eagles rivalry needed more excitement , this game will be the death of the season for one of these teams and the winner will continue searching for signs of life.
Those of you not familiar with the Walking Dead, I will provide a short synopsis, without giving away the major plot lines or destroying the show for those that watch or intend to watch the show at some point. The Walking Dead is an episodic adventure depicting two groups of survivalists that deal with the hardships of overcoming the trials and tribulations that are involved with surviving the Zombie Apacalypse. The show follows two groups, one group a band of survivors that are insearch of a safe haven from the zombies and another group that has created a safe community, but is run by a maniacal dictator. “Walkers” is the term people in the show use to describe the zombies that look to feed on the living.
These two football teams have aspects of their organizations that mirror the main characters of the television program. Their situations, both on and off the field are stunningly similar to the series as well. The management, coaching and players all have a direct correlation with the situations in the show.
