Coming May 24: Season 2 of Return Game: Birds, 'Boys, and Bad Blood, presented by NovaCare Rehabilitation, hosted by Rob Ellis and Derrick Gunn. This nine-episode season will take you on a deep dive into the decades-long rivalry between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys. It's a rivalry that started when the Eagles were World Champions, and it has spanned decades with no signs of letting up. Sure, you've seen the games, but there's more – so much more – to both sides of the story. You'll hear firsthand from the Eagles legends who lived them. Whether you're an Eagles fan or not, learn why this is one of the fiercest rivalries in sports. Subscribe now, so you don't miss any of the excitement! Episode 1: The Hit that Started it All – There wasn’t a lot of bad blood between the Birds and the Boys until December 1967. There was a play that went down in the Cotton Bowl and Eagles fans have never forgiven or forgotten the moment when the rivalry started to roll. Episode 2: Dick Vermeil to the Rescue – Tom Landry was coaching the ‘Boys and they were really, really good. It was hard to believe the Birds would be able to beat them. By 1976, something needed to be done to shake up the team. A college coach from UCLA was just the changemaker the Birds had been waiting for, but it wasn’t going to be easy. Episode 3: We Want Dallas – Dick Vermeil had the Eagles on the doorstep of the first Super Bowl appearance in franchise history in the 1980 season. The team standing in their way? The Dallas Cowboys. Episode 4: Buddy Ball – Buddy Ryan stirred the pot and fans ate it up. They loved his rift with Tom Landry. They loved it when he would disparage the team in the press. And they loved it even more when he led the team in some of the most iconic games of the era. It didn't take Buddy Ryan long to leave his mark on the rivalry. Episode 5: Gang Green – Before Troy Aikman was a Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the Cowboys, he was feasted upon by the legendary Gang Green defense to the tune of 11 sacks in a single game, setting the tone for the next decade of the rivalry. As for the Eagles, a tragic accident and the birth of free agency forever altered the team and created one of the more remarkable "what if" scenarios in NFL history. Episode 6: Dawn of a New Era – Jeffrey Lurie takes the helm of the franchise and steers it into the most successful era in team history. Episode 7: Fortune Favors the Bold – The Eagles dominated the rivalry in the 2000s. How did things turn in the Eagles' direction? It all started with a kick .. in Dallas. Episode 8: 44-6 – T.O. returns to Philadelphia, but this time as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Two years later, the Eagles needed a miracle to make the playoffs. Everything fell into place. The only thing left was to beat the Cowboys. Episode 9: Birds, 'Boys, and Bad Blood – Another decade. Another series of Eagles-Cowboys showdowns to determine NFC East supremacy. There is a reason this rivalry is over 50 years old and only getting better.
