The Cowboys and Eagles had losing records in both of their games in 1963, including this 27-20 Dallas win on November 17.
The rivalry is not especially interesting this year. Dallas entered the first game at 3-5 and came away with the 38-23 win. The Eagles were also 3-5.
On Sunday, the Eagles are 3-8. The Cowboys are 5-6.
This marks the first time since 1963 that the teams will play each other twice when each team had a losing record. In fact, in the 52-year history of the rivalry, this has occurred only two times.
