It’s a bitter rivalry on Monday Night Football.

Few fanbases hate each other like Eagles and Cowboys fans. In an NFC East that has come down to the wire in recent seasons, getting a win over a division foe is icing on the cake. Both teams sit at 1-1 and tied atop the division.

The Eagles are a mixed bag. While new starting quarterback Jalen Hurts has been impressive at times, the offense as a whole had a lackluster performance against the 49ers in Week 2. They stomped the Falcons in Week 1, but how much of that is due to Atlanta’s struggles? They will face a firm test against the Cowboys. They lost a hard-fought battle against the Buccaneers to start the season, but a late-second field goal pushed them over the Chargers in Week 2.

One of these teams will rise to 2-1 to lead the NFC East. Will it be the Cowboys or Eagles?
