Eagles' Pederson: 'We're gonna win' vs. Cowboys

PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles coach Doug Pederson just raised the stakes for Sunday's all-important matchup at the Dallas Cowboys.

During his weekly radio appearance on 94.1 WIP on Monday, Pederson said the Eagles would win Sunday at AT&T Stadium.

"We're going down to Dallas, and our guys are gonna be ready to play. And we're gonna win that football game, and when we do, we're in first place in the NFC East," Pederson told the radio station. "We control our own destiny. We're right where we need to be."

When asked later Monday about the comments, Pederson denied ever making a guarantee.

"Never said. ... I never said 'guarantee a win,'" Pederson said. "I'd never do that."

Pederson added he had no regrets about how he phrased his comments during his radio appearance.

"No, because it shows confidence in our football team," Pederson said. "I promise you [Cowboys coach] Jason Garrett is going to say the same thing with his team, that they are going to win the football game as well. I'm not going to stand up here and go on record and say, 'We're going to go there and try and win a game. Man, hopefully we can go win this one.' It just doesn't show confidence. And I want to show confidence in our players. We got a ton of confidence in them."

Pederson made the original comments after saying he understands the fan base's mindset that "the sky is falling" following a 38-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings that dropped the Eagles to 3-3 on the season.

The Cowboys are also 3-3 following their 24-22 loss to the New York Jets over the weekend, setting up a pivotal NFC East matchup on Sunday Night Football.

"Has it been beautiful or perfect or all of that? No," Pederson told the radio station of the Eagles' start. "But all we have to do is try to be 1-0 this week, beat the Dallas Cowboys [and] we're in first place.

"And listen, they're reeling, too. They're struggling, too. They've dropped their last three games. So this will be an exciting football game."
