Cowboys were born to be the Eagles' (and everyone else's) rival

The allure of the silver helmets with the blue star, Roger Staubach’s great escapes and those cleavage-revealing cheerleaders was too intoxicating at a time when men named Joe Kuharich, Jerry Williams and Ed Khayat were steering the Eagles into the gutter.

Coach Buck Shaw’s team went into the season confident that they could contend for an NFL title, but the Eagles suffered a lopsided home loss to the Cleveland Browns on opening day.

The Cowboys, coached by a 36-year-old Landry, would be the Eagles’ first victory en route to an 11-2 season that culminated with a championship win over Vince Lombardi and the Green Bay Packers at Franklin Field.

Ron Jaworski threw a couple of TD passes to Harold Carmichael, and barefooted Tony Franklin connected on a then franchise record 59-yard field goal just before halftime.
