Pork Chop Bowl
December 18, 1988 – As the Cowboys dominated the Eagles in the game, Cowboys fans decided to dangle pork chops from fishing poles in the later stages of the game. This was done to taunt coach Buddy Ryan who had nearly died choking on a pork chop just that week.
September 15, 1991 – The Cowboys were dealt one of their most humiliating defeats in the rivalry. The eagles decimated the Cowboys 24-0. They had one of the best defensive line-ups in the history of the NFL at the time led by the legendary future Hall of Famer Reggie White.
November 23, 1989 – While the Eagles destroyed the Cowboys on the field 27-0, the real story surrounded head coach Buddy Ryan who allegedly (according to Dallas coach Jimmy Johnson) put "bounties'' on the heads of some Cowboys, specifically Luis Zendejas. After the game, Johnson said "I have absolutely no respect for the way they played the game. I would have said something to Buddy, but he wouldn't stand on the field long enough. He put his big, fat rear end into the dressing room."
Ryan responded the next day saying
"I resent that. I've been on a diet. I've lost a couple of pounds and I thought I was looking good."
