Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Eagles vs Giants

Rival Team: New York Giants

The Eagles-Giants rivalry is one of the fiercest in the NFL and has been going strong since 1933. The rivalry is geographically based as Philadelphia, and New York has strong rivalries in all four of the major professional sports. The rivalry is so strong that it was even voted the #1 NFL rivalry by NFL Network. The Giants shutout the Eagles in the teams’ initial meeting and hold an 85-81-2 lead in the all-time series, but the Eagles will look to draw closer when these two rivals meet next.

Eagles vs Cowboys

Rival Team: Dallas Cowboys

Over the past few decades Eagles-Cowboys has been a can’t miss matchup. These two rivals have a bitter dislike for each other which has led to some intense games. One of the most intense matchups was the “Bounty Bowls” that took place in 1989. During both meetings between these two teams the Eagles put a bounty on Cowboys kicker Luis Zendejas and in the second meeting the Cowboys were pelted with snowballs and other debris by Eagles fans. The games between these two rivals are some of the most intense in the NFL, so make sure to be in attendance when these two get together.

Eagles vs Redskins

Rival Team: Washington Redskins

The Eagles-Redskins rivalry can be traced back to 1934 when the then Boston Redskins defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 6-0. Despite moving to Washington only a few years later, the rivalry has remained strong over the years as both teams have played in the same division ever since. The proximity of these rivals means you’ll find plenty of both teams fans in town when these two meet creating an intense in game and tailgating experience.

Eagles Tailgate Guide


In Philadelphia, tailgating is as much a part of the gameday experience as the action on the field. The lots around Lincoln Financial Field open five hours before kickoff allowing for a full day of tailgating fun and excitement. While at times Philly fans can be a bit rough around the edges once you get to know people you’ll fit right in assuming, of course, you’re wearing green and white. It may be a bit of a different story if you show up in Giants or Cowboys gear.

There is plenty of drinking and carousing to take part in when tailgating in Philly. Popular tailgate games include washers, cornhole, and ladder ball. Things can get quite competitive out in the lots, so bring your A game if you’re looking to impress your new friends.

Lastly, when tailgating before an Eagles game come prepared to enjoy some local favorites including cheesesteaks, Italian sausage, and soft pretzels. You can prepare these dishes or buy them and bring them to the tailgate depending on your cooking expertise. If you’re looking to grab a good cheese steak before the game, you can’t go wrong with Pat or Gino’s, and you won’t find a better pretzel than those made by the Philadelphia Soft Pretzel Factory. Enjoying some Philly favorites will go a long way in ensuring you get the true Philly tailgating experience.


The Eagle Mobile

One of the must see tailgates at any Philadelphia Eagles tailgate is The Eagle Mobile. This Winnebago has been tricked out in Eagles paraphernalia to show off just how much these fans love their Eagles. These guys love tailgating almost as much as the Eagles, so don’t be afraid to stop by and talk some Philly football.

Where to tailgate

Eagles Stadium Guide

In Game

Lincoln Financial Field provides one of the best gameday experiences you’ll find in the NFL with a not only amazing view but also an outstanding atmosphere to match. There isn’t a bad seat in the house at the Linc where you’ll be treated to clean crisp sightlines all throughout the stadium. Even in the upper deck, you’ll get a great view of the action as its steepness puts you right on top of the action.

The atmosphere of the crowd though is what sets the Linc apart from other venues. Week in and week out the atmosphere is palpable with Eagles fans cheering loudly and frequently for their team win or lose. Eagles fans also won’t hesitate to let opponents or their team have it meaning you’ll hear lots of raw emotion throughout the crowd, which you may not experience in other NFL stadiums where fans are a bit more reserved.

Philly fans may have a reputation for being a bit rough. However, if you come and cheer for the Eagles, you should have no problem fitting in with the crowd and may even make a few friends. You may, however, want to leave the Cowboys or Giants gear at home unless you want to get mercilessly heckled.

At Lincoln Financial Field you’ll find a top notch in-game atmosphere that can only be attributed to being in the company of some of the most passionate and diehard fans in the NFL.
