Darius Slay learned quickly how much Eagles fans dislike Dallas long before he walked into the locker room this week and heard teammates say: “It’s Cowboys Week.”
“I understand how big it is,” Slay said. “It’s like Super Bowl or die. Y’all are serious about this. Let’s turn up then. I’m excited for it.”
Slay, a three-time Pro Bowl cornerback, is in his first season with the Eagles after seven in Detroit. The Lions faced Chicago, Green Bay and Minnesota twice per season in the NFC North. But Eagles-Cowboys is different.
“I think we considered all our teams rivals,” Slay said. “But over here it’s just they really didn’t like nothing about the Cowboys. Nothing. And that’s just funny. I’m like loving it.”
Slay gets his first taste of the bitter rivalry Sunday night when the Eagles (2-4-1) host the Cowboys (2-5) in a battle for first place in a woeful NFC East.
Safety Jalen Mills found out his first day in Philly how badly fans want to beat Dallas.
“I was out eating a cheesesteak and I remember I had a fan tell me, ‘Man, I don’t care if you lose every game, as long as y’all beat Dallas twice a year, my year is made,’” Mills said.
Slay, Mills and the rest of Philadelphia’s secondary could have their hands full against one of the league’s best receiving corps. Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson have combined for 122 catches for 1,624 yards and seven touchdowns.
“They do have multiple playmakers on the outside,” Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. “It’s not a game where you just take one guy away and you’re going to limit them. So I think that is an important part of it. They are explosive, they are productive at all those positions, and it’s going to take a group effort.”
But they’ll likely be catching passes from rookie Ben DiNucci, a seventh-round pick from James Madison, on Sunday night. Dak Prescott is out for the season and Andy Dalton is in concussion protocol.
“He’s pouring everything that he personally can into this opportunity that may be in front of him,” Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said of DiNucci. “I’ve been through injury situations. At the end of the day, you’ve got to make sure you give the football team a chance to win. We can’t just play down to that.
