The National Football League's divisions are filled with heated rivalries, especially when it comes to the NFC East. Whether the Dallas Cowboys are facing the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, or Washington Commanders, fans on both sides can expect fireworks both on and off the gridiron.

Even though the 2024 NFL campaign doesn't begin for another three months, the NFC East fireworks have already begun going off. After all, one of the Cowboys' top defenders has found himself in a social media beef with one of the Giants' new players.

Cowboys News: Trevon Diggs Beefing with Giants WR Malik Nabers

With training camp about a month away, Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs is beefing with Giants rookie wide receiver Malik Nabers. The situation began when Diggs took a (well-warranted) shot at New York on X (formerly Twitter), stating that the "Giants been getting belt for some years now."

Although he didn't elaborate, Diggs' shot likely has to do with Dallas' recent dominance over its NFC East rival. Since the beginning of the 2013 NFL season, the Cowboys own a dominant 18-4 record over the Giants and haven't lost to the latter since January 2021, winning the last six meetings by an average of 21.0 points.

While Nabers has yet to experience the rivalry firsthand, that didn't stop him from sticking up for the Giants. The former LSU Tiger posted explicit lyrics from YoungBoy Never Broke Again's "Boot Up" which state, "[Explict] want to Insta' beef, he Tweetin' and I see all of that."

Time will tell if the beef reaches the next level, but, for now, it's fun seeing Diggs and Nabers adding more fuel to the long-time rivalry. While the Cowboys CB's shot at the Giants is completely valid, you do have to respect Nabers for not backing down from one of the NFL's best ballhawks.

Having said that, the Giants rookie better be careful about what he says to the two-time Pro Bowler. After all, the Cowboys own a one-sided 6-1 record over the Giants when Diggs is in the lineup. He produced a ton of results in those matchups, registering 23 solo tackles, 11 broken-up passes, three interceptions, and one forced fumble.

Additionally, the ex-Alabama defender registered an 81.5 Pro Football Focus coverage grade in his last game against New York (2023, Week 1).

With the Giants and Cowboys facing each other twice per season, Diggs will likely see a lot of Nabers going forward. As good as the former is, containing the rookie wideout won't be easy. The 20-year-old was one of college football's best wideouts last season as he led the SEC in both receptions (89) and receiving yards (1,569) while finding the end zone 14 times (3rd-most in NCAA).

Fortunately, the two fanbases won't have to wait long to see Diggs and Nabers take their beef from the internet to the gridiron.

The Cowboys and Giants have their first meeting of the 2024 campaign when they meet at MetLife Stadium for the Week 4 Thursday Night Football matchup. As training camp looms DraftKings Sportsbook lists Dallas as the 4-point road favorite in the highly-anticipated tilt.
