The Eagles and Cowboys engaged in a little Twitter trash talk this week, occasioned by Michael Vick’s birthday.
Vick turned 32 on Tuesday, and whoever runs the Cowboys’ verified Twitter account thought it would be funny to commemorate the occasion by giving Vick a birthday greeting that included an image of Vick being dragged to the ground by Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware:

But then whoever runs the verified Eagles Insider Twitter account came back, and came back strong, with a reminder that the Eagles got the best of the Cowboys last season:

For those who don’t recall, in two games against the Cowboys last season Vick went a combined 39-for-60 for 572 yards, with four touchdowns and no interceptions, plus another 10 carries for 60 yards. The Eagles won the two games by a combined score of 54-14.
In this Cowboys-Eagles battle, I’d have to say the Eagles come out on top. Just as they did twice on the field last season.
