Monday night's matchup between the division rival New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys has multiple fun story lines.

It sounds like Cowboys defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence is focusing on facing Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. Lawrence has made a habit of sacking Big Blue QBs for a few years now, dating back to when Eli Manning was still taking snaps.

Lawrence infamously used to refer to Manning as "Little Eli," and when asked today how he feels about Jones, it sounds like that's his nickname for the fourth-year pro as well.

"I'm excited to see Little Eli again," Lawrence said, via Patrik Walker.

Lawrence had 11 tackles in the Cowboys' first two games, but no sacks.

Based off today's comment, he might be planning on bagging one or two come Monday.
