The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles haven't locked horns since Christmas Eve, but you wouldn't know it based on how fans of both teams have interacted on social media -- Twitter specifically -- since the offseason started.

Even players have got involved.

After A.J. Brown labeled CeeDee Lamb as a slot receiver on Twitter, Cowboys fans came to Lamb's defense in droves. Lamb even responded to Brown on Instagram saying he can play both positions, which the statistics prove.

The Dak Prescott-Jalen Hurts debate has raged on, too, with Dallas diehards backing Prescott and Philly fanatics fighting for Hurts.

Essentially, whenever there's an opening for either fan base to slight the other's team, it's executed without hesitation.

The latest example occurred when a noted Cowboys fan account reminded followers of Dez Bryant's epic performance against the Eagles on Sunday Night Football after Malcolm Jenkins tried getting under Bryant's skin before kickoff.

Revisiting when Cowboys WR Dez Bryant owned the Eagles thanks to Malcolm Jenkins

It's absolutely hilarious that Jenkins talked the talked pregame and didn't even end up covering Bryant. Perhaps the former three-time Pro Bowler should have left that to the cornerback tasked with shadowing Bryant, because to say No. 88 stole Bradley Fletcher's lunch money would be an understatement.

Jenkins was nowhere to be found on Bryant's three touchdowns. Just a weird look after he got in Bryant's face moments before kickoff.

Make no mistake: each one of Bryant's scores were massive. It was a tight game in the second half, and Bryant's final TD put the Cowboys in front for good. They went up 35-24 and went on to win 38-27 after a late Dan Bailey field goal.

The third TD in particular was huge, as the Eagles had rattled off 24 straight points between the second and third quarters to overcome a 21-0 deficit. After a DeMarco Murray short touchdown run, Bryant's third score with 12:48 left in the fourth quarter was the dagger.

For the game, Dez caught six passes (on seven targets) for 114 yards and the three touchdowns. It was the only three-touchdown game of his career and it was spurred on because Jenkins couldn't keep his mouth shut.

Jenkins should've known that Bryant was going to eat up the trash talk. It gave him even more incentive to ball out in primetime, and the Eagles paid the price.

Prescott and Lamb are all kinds of fun, but there's a small part in all of us that misses the Tony Romo-Dez Bryant connection, right?
