The NFL is filled with rivalries, both longstanding and newly formed ones.
For instance, the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears have been rivals for a long time, given the history of both organizations.
Then, there are new rivalries that have formed, such as the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals.
Regardless of how long they have been active, rivalries generally make for good storylines, and fan attendance to boot.
The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles are longtime rivals, given that they are in the same division.
Despite the Eagles making it to the Super Bowl last season, Demarcus Lawrence is convinced that the gap between the two teams isn’t very vast.
As Lawrence indicated on a recent podcast, via NFL.com, “I feel like it comes down to certain details.”

Those details, of course, could mean a myriad of different things.
Many analysts have pointed to Dak Prescott as a sore spot for this team, while others have pointed to a lack of offensive help.
Lawrence appears ready to compete in the NFC, confident in his team’s ability to succeed.
Do they have what it takes to compete with the Eagles within the division, let alone in a playoff push?
That certainly remains to be seen.
With Mike McCarthy slated to call the plays on offense this season, the Cowboys’ offense might look significantly different.
If Lawrence and the defense are able to hold their own, there’s no telling what they will be able to do against the Eagles and the rest of the NFC.NEXT: Dak Prescott Describes What He Hopes His Legacy Will Be
