Return Game

Season 2, Episode 3 - We want Dallas

Return Game: Birds, 'Boys, and Bad Blood, presented by NovaCare Rehabilitation, is the sweeping story of the Eagles and Cowboys Rivalry. In 1979, the Eagles headed to Dallas where they attempted to beat the defending Super Bowl Champs in Texas Stadium. When the Cowboys scored first, Eagles fans may have felt rumblings of that "not again" dread, whether they cared to admit it. But the Birds were always full of surprises!

By January 1981, it was here - the game. One that took on as much importance as any previous game in the franchise's history. Dallas was in our house and everything unfolded as Coach Vermeil had planned since his arrival.
