The Philadelphia Eagles sent the Jacksonville Jaguars 35 cheesesteaks and 25 orders of fries after the Jaguars beat the Dallas Cowboys in overtime on Sunday.

Jeff Harris, owner of the Jacksonville restaurant “Philly’s Finest,” received a call for the order to be delivered to Jaguars Coach Doug Pederson at TIAA Bank Field on Monday, the Florida Times-Union reported. The Eagles then confirmed with Harris that the order was not a prank. (RELATED: Jaguars Owner Shad Khan Rips Urban Meyer With Blunt Comments)

“Someone called in food and I made food, and the courier picked it up and brought it to the stadium,” Harris told the Florida Times-Union.

The Jaguars overcame a 17-point deficit Sunday to beat the Cowboys 40-34 in overtime. making it the Jaguars’ first win against a National Football Conference (NFC) team in 20 tries. The Cowboys’ loss to the Jaguars makes it possible for the Eagles — an NFC East division rival — to get the number one seed. The Cowboys need to win the rest of their games and the Eagles need to lose their games for Dallas to win the division.

If Jaguars Coach Doug Pederson can maintain the momentum, the Jaguars may have a chance to continue playing in postseason.
