Week 14, 1989: Eagles vs Cowboys
While this game may not follow in the order of importance, it is necessary to include as a follow-up.
After the Bounty Game on Thanksgiving, word quickly spread about the alleged "bounty" and the Cowboys became furious. This was their final match-up of the season, and it was planned to be a good one.
When Eagles fans heard that the Cowboys were looking for revenge on the team, they became more rowdy than ever and greeted the Cowboys in a very welcoming way. The stadium had been filled with snow that had not been removed for several days, so every chance the Eagles fans got, they plunged Cowboys player and coaches with beer, snowballs, ice and anything they could reach.
Targets of the intense hatred included back judge Al Jury, who was knocked to the ground by an attack of snowballs, Cowboys punter Mike Saxon, who was targeted in the end zone, and Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson who was quickly escorted off the field by Philadelphia Police.
As a result, Cowboys coach Jimmie Johnson referred to Eagle fans as "thugs." Yeah, that's the way to get them to stop next time around.
Anyways, back to the game. The Eagles would win 20-10, and Eagles fans would be satisfied with the outcome, and their part in the game.
