PHILADELPHIA (AP) — It didn’t take Golden Tate long to learn his new team’s biggest rival.
Tate, the playmaking wide receiver acquired from Detroit last week, will make his debut with the Philadelphia Eagles (4-4) against the Dallas Cowboys (3-5) on Sunday night.
“I’ve read my social media, so our fans have expressed the passionate dislike of the Cowboys,” Tate said. “It’s going to be a great game. I’m happy that my first game gets to be at home against such an intense opponent.”
Tate had his best game this season against the Cowboys, catching eight passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns on Sept. 30.
“I think it gives me an advantage,” Tate said. “I’ve seen those guys. They are going to run the same defense, and I’m on another team with a completely different playbook.”
