There’s a lot to celebrate in the Eagles’ Week 16 win over the Cowboys, and the team is just one win away from taking the NFC East and the division winner’s playoff spot. Sunday’s win also marks the first time since 2017 that Philly came out on top over their rival.
Alshon Jeffery isn’t able to help the Eagles offense through this final stretch, but he was quick to celebrate the team win on Sunday.

And, he was just one of many to speak to the media or take to Twitter to revel in the huge rivalry win to keep the Eagles’ playoff dreams alive.
Jason Peters: "We knew we had to win the last 4. We still have one left that we gotta take care of next week (vs. Giants) ... We got a good shot beating them in their place. We knew Dallas was going to be a challenge, but we don’t quit around here." #Eagles.— Martin Frank (@Mfranknfl) December 23, 2019

Fletcher Cox with a shoutout to the Linc crowd: "I'll tell you what, fans played a big role. They stayed in it the whole game, from start to finish. I think that played a big factor in it." #Eagles #PHIvsDAL— Ed Kracz (@kracze) December 23, 2019
And from former players, and experts around the league.

I respect the hell out of Miles Sanders.— Emmanuel Acho (@thEMANacho) December 23, 2019
He could’ve scored, boosted his stats and his ego, but he selflessly goes down, knowing the game ends with his first down. #FlyEaglesFly
Carson Wentz completed 31 of 40 passes for 319 yds and a TD w/o an INT (108.2 rating) w/o #Eagles' top 3 WRs from Week 1, their top RB for most of the season, their all pro-caliber RT, their Pro Bowl TE and another WR for stretches in 17-9 win over Dallas Sunday. Is that enough?— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) December 23, 2019
Including a man who refuses to give Carson Wentz any credit...
