Super Wild Card weekend was not good for the NFC East as the Cowboys and Eagles were humiliated by the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, respectively.
New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton, who has played against both of these teams twice a season over the last few years, poked fun at the Cowboys and Eagles’ postseason downfalls.
The veteran wide receiver posted on X Monday night, “Eagle and Cowboys collapse back to back?” and then added the gif of Michael Jackson eating popcorn.
We can summarize that the Giants receiver took enjoyment in both teams losing in the playoffs and joining them at home. On Sunday, Slayton tweeted “Go Pack Go” as Green Bay dominated the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.
Eagles fans took exception to Slayton adding his commentary about what transpired. But you can’t blame him for finding solace in both teams’ downfall. The Giants struggled this season against the Eagles and Cowboys, going 1-3 this season, with their lone win coming in Week 18 at home vs. Philadelphia.
In that Week 18 win, Slayton had five receptions (seven targets) for 62 yards and a touchdown. A few weeks prior against the Eagles on Christmas, he posted three receptions (three targets) for 90 yards and a score.
This was a bad year for the division as last year’s NFC Champion (Eagles) and this year’s NFC East Champion (Cowboys) are sitting on the couch after losing to teams that they should’ve beaten. It’s safe to say that it will be an interesting offseason in the NFC East as all four teams are in a state of flux as they try to figure out what direction they should go in 2024.
