Lane Johnson took Dallas Hate Week to a whole new level.
This game means a lot to the NFL-leading Eagles. It’s the Cowboys, in Dallas, with a win essentially clinching the NFC East for the Birds, and will also help smooth the path to a first-round bye and home field advantage in the playoffs. It means so much, and the hatred for the Cowboys is so deep, that left tackle Lane Johnson threatened his grandmother’s life, if she continued to root for the Cowboys:

Some may say this is going too far, but Lane has been with the Eagles for five seasons now, if grandma hasn’t converted yet to a Birds fan, she deserves this type of verbal assault.
