Following a touchdown from Alshon Jeffery, the Philadelphia Eagles broke out an end zone celebration. The Dallas Cowboys did not approve.
Demarcus Lawrence was the first Cowboy to confront Jeffery and several of his Philadelphia teammates. He was soon joined by Antwaun Woods and Tyrone Crawford.
Cowboys were not happy about that Eagles touchdown celebration, for some reason. https://t.co/ZSe1vhwXKq

It’s hard to figure out exactly why Dallas was so up in arms about this. We understand some frustration with allowing a touchdown and it’s probably not fun seeing opponents celebrate.
That said, this celebration was quite tame, especially compared to some others we’ve seen over the last couple of years.
The Cowboys seemed to be looking for conflict here.
