Return Game

Season 2, Episode 2 - Dick Vermeil to the Rescue

Return Game: Birds, 'Boys, and Bad Blood, presented by NovaCare Rehabilitation, is the sweeping story of the Eagles and Cowboys rivalry. The early 1970s was a painful time for Eagles fans, but they knew better days were ahead - how couldn't they be?!

Tom Landry was coaching the 'Boys and they were really, really good. After winning the franchise's first Super Bowl in 1972, the Eagles took their best shot in a memorable 1973 showdown.

By 1976, something needed to be done to shake up the team. A college coach from UCLA was just the change-maker the Birds had been waiting for - but it wasn't going to be easy.
