Return Game

Season 2, Episode 5 - Gang Green

Return Game: Birds, 'Boys, and Bad Blood, presented by NovaCare Rehabilitation, is the sweeping story of the Eagles and Cowboys rivalry. Troy Aikman was introduced to the rivalry early in his Hall of Fame career when he met Gang Green - the vaunted Eagles defense. And in 1991, his number was up - or was his number 11? 

Tragedy struck the Eagles in 1992 when teammate, friend, and brother Jerome Brown died in a car accident. His memory inspired the team to attempt to "Bring it Home for Jerome."

By 1993, players had secured free agency resulting in the Birds' roster being completely remade. Fans have wondered "what if?" ever since. Meanwhile, the 'Boys stayed relatively intact and continued to dominate.
