On Monday night, New York Giants legend Lawrence Taylor was at MetLife Stadium to watch his former team face the Dallas Cowboys. 

Taylor, a 10-time Pro Bowler and former MVP, had an incredible career in New York. He finished his run on the Giants with a whopping 142 sacks.  

Unsurprisingly, football fans were happy to see Taylor at MetLife Stadium to watch the Giants. 

Some fans even tweeted that Taylor should've put cleats on and got a few reps against the Cowboys.

"Still the best player there tonight," a fan jokingly said. 

"Put him in," a Giants fan tweeted. 

"OG came to see the young buck Micah," an NFL fan wrote. "Micah will show out."

The Giants ultimately lost 23-16 to the Cowboys. 

Taylor was most likely impressed with Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence's performance. He had three sacks against the Giants. 

The Cowboys and Giants will meet again on Thanksgiving.
