Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys was arguably the biggest game of the year so far for the Philadelphia Eagles. Not only was it at home, but it was also the first time this year that the division rivals were squaring off.

Big games like that tend to bring out big-name fans, and sure enough another Philadelphia athlete was in attendance on Sunday.

Bryce Harper Eagles Game

Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper was on hand with his wife, Kayla. Both were decked out in Eagles green.

When Harper was shown on the scoreboard during the game, he made the most of his opportunity. After saluting the cheering crowd, he did the Phillies' "big balls" celebration for them, getting the fans even more excited. While smiling, Kayla did not seem to approve, shaking her head at her silly husband.

The Phillies' NSFW celebration gained national attention during the team's postseason run this fall, which unfortunately fell short in the NLCS against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It's meant to signify the team's clutch performance under pressure and coming through when it matters most.

While the Phillies didn't quite do that this year, they still had a lot of big postseason playoff moments before fizzling out. Harper had several of them, including an epic 2-homer performance in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves.

While the Phillies weren't able to win a championship this year, perhaps the Eagles will. They've picked up where they left off after reaching the Super Bowl last year, posting the best record in the NFL this season (7-1) prior to their game against the Cowboys.
