Tempers were high between Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles fans as the teams locked horns on Sunday Night Football. The game had all the makings to be another classic in this age-old rivalry, but the Cowboys came out and stomped the Eagles to the tune of a 33-13 blowout.
With the win, the Cowboys now sit atop the NFC East for the time meaning. The Eagles, on the other hand, suffered their second defeat to a top-flight team in as many weeks and has now been outscored 75-33 over those two games.
The City of Brotherly Love isn't feeling the love right now.
Beloved former Eagle Seth Joyner eviscerated the team on JAKIB Sports' postgame show, going as far as to call Philadelphia "a bad football team" that tricked fans into thinking it was good by winning close games.
Speaking of Eagles fans, they aren't doing much better. Following two-straight losses, one demoralized fan was spotted protesting outside the NovaCare Complex (the Eagles practice facility). The fan, decked out head to toe in Eagles gear, wants defensive coordinator Sean Desai fired and had a not-so-subtle message for cornerbacks Darius Slay and James Bradberry written on a pair of trash cans.

OK, now we can say that the Cowboys have officially broken the Eagles. If not the team itself, then their fans's collective spirit is shattered. Videos on social media show one Eagles diehard crying after the loss during an interview on live television (!) with WPSG, otherwise known as Philly 57.
Another video that has since went viral depicted a Birds fan at AT&T Stadium take off his Michael Vick Eagles jersey and change into a CeeDee Lamb jersey that still had tags on it. Did the gentleman lose a bet? Did he scheme this ahead of time for the clout knowing the video would gain traction on social media?
It's a ridiculous look regardless.
The jersey swap that literally nobody asked for.
A select few drama queens don't represent an entire fan base. Despite losing two straight games, the sky is not falling on the Eagles, as much as the crying fan and protesting fan's actions might suggest it's crashing and burning. That said, the collective Eagles fan base isn't fully innocent.
In keeping up with their reactionary tendencies, we do recall the Lincoln Financial Field crowd booing the team in its home opener while leading 3-0 and again in wins vs the Bills and Chiefs, as well as its defeat against the 49ers last week.
Those poor fans. Must be tough rooting for a 10-3 club that still controls its own destiny in the NFC East race and played in the Super Bowl last year.
