DeMarcus Lawrence is using this as motivation.

The Dallas Cowboys pass rusher didn't seem too pleased when the NFL Network placed him at No. 34 on its top 100 list of players going into 2018.

"33 spots to go," Lawrence wrote on his Twitter handle, @TankLawrence. "#Motivation."

Lawrence and left tackle Tyron Smith were among the players announced on the network for its Nos. 31-40. Smith checked in at No. 39.

The Philadelphia Eagles pull away from the Dallas Cowboys with a dominating second half on the way to a 37-9 win.

Lawrence was in the middle of the three pass rushers selected -- the LA Chargers' Joey Bosa was No. 37 and Houston's Jadeveon Clowney was No. 32.

The Cowboys have had four players selected so far. Along with Lawrence and Smith, running back Ezekiel Elliott was No. 54 and right guard Zack Martin was No. 71.
