Doug Pederson is very confident.
On Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in what will be another chapter in this intense rivalry.
The winner of the game will claim sole possession of first place in the NFC East.
Doug Pederson added another element to the already storied rivalry but seemingly guaranteeing a victory.
During his weekly radio interview with WIP 94.1, the Eagles head coach had this to say about the big game:
Here’s the full quote:
“We’re going down to Dallas, and our guys are gonna be ready to play. And we’re gonna win that football game, and when we do, we’re in first place in the NFC East.”
Pederson is showing some strong confidence in his team, who’s coming off a 38-20 loss to the Vikings on Sunday in which their secondary was torched for four touchdown passes and over 300 yards passing from Kirk Cousins.
Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys, who are also 3-3, are coming off an embarrassing loss to the winless New York Jets.
Something has to give!
