Just when we thought this Sunday's Cowboys vs. Eagles game couldn't get any bigger.

With the division rivals squaring off in a matchup containing huge playoff-seeding implications, former stars Dez Bryant and DeSean Jackson are upping the ante.

Current players may not be able to bet on their teams under NFL rules, but former players sure can! Check out the friendly wager below.

Dez Bryant and DeSean Jackson Make Huge Bet on Cowboys vs. Eagles

Whew, that's quite a bet! The retired wide receivers publicly declared they're betting $10,000 on the matchup, each putting his money where his mouth is.

The Cowboys are favored in the matchup after rattling off a series of impressive wins to get back in the race for the No. 1 seed, while the Eagles dropped a tough game to the 49ers and look vulnerable.

Of course, there's also the narrative that Dallas can't win a big game. Never mind that the Cowboys just fell short against the Eagles earlier this season, but this is a perfect opportunity for Dallas to prove this team can legitimately compete for a Super Bowl.

If the Cowboys fall short, at least you won't be able to argue Dez Bryant didn't believe.
