On Monday ahead of the crucial matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson guaranteed his team would win Sunday.

It took all week, but finally on Friday DeMarcus Lawrence responded to that bold declaration.

For what it’s worth, both teams enter Week 7 needing a win in a big way.

Dallas has lost three straight, and there are rumblings that Jason Garrett is legitimately going to be on the hot seat if the ‘Boys lose.

The Eagles have been incredibly inconsistent this year and are tied with Dallas for the division lead with a record of 3-3.

The Cowboys didn’t need any extra motivation. Clearly. But Pederson absolutely gave it to them with some bulletin-board material they won’t soon forget.
