Why First Lady Jill Biden will be at Sunday’s Eagles-Cowboys game


People who show up early at Lincoln Financial Field for Sunday’s game between the Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys will see a familiar face involved in an important initiative that includes the NFL, which deals with a serious issue.


First Lady Jill Biden will be at Sunday night’s game as part of the league’s “Crucial Catch” campaign. Biden is expected to join cancer patients, cancer survivors and their families around 7:30 p.m. to participate in activities surrounding the cause.

The “Crucial Catch” campaign is an awareness campaign led by the NFL and the American Cancer Society that focuses on early detection of cancer and reducing the risk of contracting the disease. League stadiums, including Lincoln Financial Field, painted “Crucial Catch” on the back of the end zones.

Biden is no stranger to the Eagles, given that she has previously said that she and her husband, President Joe Biden, are Eagles fans. It may also be because she was born in Hammonton. It’s possible she’ll stay and watch the rest of the game.

The Eagles enter the game as the only undefeated team in the league, sporting a 5-0 record. Meanwhile, the Cowboys are just one game behind the Eagles in the NFC East standings, meaning the winner of the game will top the division.
