Eagles Gifted Doug Pederson And Jaguars A Bunch Of Cheesesteaks For Beating The Cowboys

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson received an awesome gift from his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, after he lead his team to a victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

The Eagles took a massive step forward in locking up the NFC East after they care of business by defeating the Chicago Bears, 25-10, at Soldier Field on Sunday and got help from the Jaguars, who upset the Cowboys in Jacksonville.

The Eagles were so thankful for the Jaguars’ upset of the Cowboys that the team actually sent Pederson and his coaching staff 35 cheesesteaks:

 Alexandra Mansfield of The Florida Times Union went into more detail:

“Jeff Harris, owner of Jacksonville restaurant Philly’s Finest, got the call for 35 cheesesteaks and 25 large fries to be delivered to Jaguars Coach Doug Pederson at TIAA Bank Field on Monday.

He said he was initially worried it was a customer who was just saying it was the Eagles ordering the food, but someone from the organization reached out to Harris and confirmed it was the real deal. Although orders of this size aren’t unusual for the restaurant, he said, it was unexpected to have someone from Philadelphia placing the order.”

Pederson’s Jaguars were trailing the Cowboys 27-10 in the third quarter of Sunday’s Week 15 game, but three Trevor Lawrence touchdown passes put Jacksonville back on top. A Noah Brown touchdown reception from Dak Prescott and a Riley Patterson 48-yard field goal sent the game into overtime.

The Jaguars won the game in overtime thanks to Rayshawn Jenkins’ 52-yard pick-six off Dak Prescott. Jacksonville is now just one game behind the Tennessee Titans for first in the AFC South, as Mike Vrabel and company fell to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

Meanwhile the Cowboys and Eagles will meet on Christmas Eve in Dallas with the Eagles having the opportunity to lock up the No. 1 seed and NFC East.
