What more can we say about the Dallas Cowboys' Week 1 performance that hasn't been said already? There was too many defensive highlights to count and Trevon Diggs was at the heart and center of it all even though the Giants couldn't get anything going through the air.

In the first quarter, Diggs popped Saquon Barkley on a reception as the running back reeled in the pass. The ball popped in the air and DaRon Bland returned it for a touchdown to give the Cowboys an early 16-0 advantage.

Later in the game, Diggs made an excellent chase-down tackle and executed a perfect punch to force a fumble for his second takeaway.

After the D celebrated the turnover, Diggs located his son Aaiden in the stands and gave him the football in a must-see moment for Cowboys fans.

In a game that included a blocked field goal returned for a touchdown, seven sacks, the aforementioned pick six, a Stephon Gilmore interception, two Tony Pollard touchdowns, and countless other defensive highlights, this was without question the top moment from the Cowboys' shutout win.

The best part? Aaiden asked for an interception ball before the game, per Jori Epstein of Yahoo Sports. Diggs said he'd try to come through and while it wasn't an INT, the Pro Bowl cornerback is grateful the Giants elected to throw the ball down 40 in the fourth quarter.

Aaiden holding up the football -- which is adorably almost bigger than his torso -- and celebrating with his infectious smile is what it's all about. Diggs obviously couldn't promise an interception ball, but the fact he delivered on his son's request was the perfect capper to a perfect night in East Rutherford.

Of course, Aaiden Diggs has become a household name for Cowboys fans.

The younger Diggs first burst onto the scene on "Hard Knocks" before the 2021 season when he went viral for bragging about his dad. And who could forget Aaiden's priceless reaction when he first got to meet quarterback Dak Prescott?

At training camp this summer, Diggs and his son played catch after practice. The only catch? If Aaiden dropped any passes, his father would have to do pushups. Team reporters caught the father-son duo celebrating by doing the Griddy.

This won't be the last Cowboys fans see of Aaiden Diggs this season. At the rate the $97 million cornerback is producing turnovers, the younger Diggs might have a collection of football's by season's end.
