Sports Illustrated: NFC East Rivalries (Redskins-Eagles)

The Redskins-Eagles rivalry is one of the fiercest the NFL has ever seen. The NFC East foes first collided in 1934, when both franchises were in their infancy, and have since produced an abundance of wild, bizarre and dramatic games. The Eagles have had the upper hand for more than a decade under coach Andy Reid, but the Redskins prevailed by pulling off one of the most lopsided trades in NFL history, dealing QB Norm Snead for QB Sonny Jurgensen in 1964.  Jurgy compared the rivalry to a bar room brawl: “Look at how many close games the Redskins and Eagles have had over the years.  Regardless of the records, the games will still be close.  You knew when you went to Philadelphia, it was going to be a very physical game, a knock-down, drag-out fight.  That’s the city’s culture.  You knew it wasn’t going to be an easy day. Nobody was going to lay down.”  Read about the storied rivalry right here.
