We've got ourselves an old-fashioned war of words, well, kind of. At the very least, the Eagles and Cowboys are once again the talk of the NFL.
Leading up to this weekend's crucial showdown in Dallas, Eagles LB Kamu Grugier-Hill started things off by calling the Dallas Cowboys chokers.

Today, during the Cowboys media session, QB Dak Prescott fired back at Grugier-Hill.
Dak Prescott was asked about the Eagles LB saying Dallas has a history of choking and they'll make them choke again.
After being told again, Dak: "Coach Garrett has a great saying...winners worry about winning and losers worry about winners." https://t.co/FBZhwTRiL8

Now, this isn't the most stern of clap-backs, but obviously, Prescott chose to pretend that he didn't know who Grugier-Hill was and offered a second line about losers worrying about winners.
As far as I'm concerned, simple smack talking like this is a great way to shorten the week and build excitement for a huge game against division rivals. If the Cowboys needed more motivation to beat the Eagles on Sunday, then they've got issues. I don't think either team is going to use any of this as fuel on the field Sunday, but it's great fun for fans on social media.
If there was one game for Grugier-Hill to break out and make an impact, though, this would be it. The memes alone would be worth it.
