“You can’t replace a Dez Bryant”.
“I don’t want to temper the win“, owner Jerry Jones said after a 27-26 come-from-behind victory Sunday night that pushed the defending NFC East champion Cowboys to 8-0 in openers against their division rival.
Where Does Dez Rank Among NFL’s Best WRs?
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will miss at least one month recovering from surgery to fix a broken bone in his right foot. He finished with team highs of eight catches for 70 yards with Bryant twice leaving the game. But the Cowboys have a Week 6 bye, and could choose to hold Bryant out until Week 7 just to be safe.
It’s puzzling why the Giants would have instructed Jennings not to score, as a touchdown – were he to have converted on the play – would have given the Giants a 10-point lead with less than two minutes left. Bryant had surgery Monday night. “He’s obviously close to me”, Romo said after his team’s tremendous comeback.
The Dallas Cowboys were relying heavily on Bryant this season. But instead New York effectively gave Dallas an extra forty seconds with which to work with on its final drive, and that turned out to be enough.
“He’s always been great in two-minute”, Amukamara said. Hopefully this changes because Romo will need to throw up some jump balls that will require some solid hands from Williams to catch them. Therefore we are going to look at the 5 big stats from the Giants loss.
The longer contract gave Bryant more earning security in case of injuries than the short-term franchise tender.
“I thought he did a really good job in the game where he had an opportunity on a slant and another slant and wasn’t able to finish those plays”, Garrett said.
For all its flaws, this wound up being a testimony to the toughness and talent of Romo and the never-say-die attitude that Jason Garrett has built into this team since he became the head coach midway through the 2010 season. He played 12 games, then missed two with a sprained toe. Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley, and Jason Witten will all have to help out even more in the passing game, while players like Devin Street will have to step into more of an unfamiliar role.
Bryant has had problems with his leg before and the Cowboys actually tried to control his reps to condition Bryant.
With all of the negative things that happened with the receivers this week, we can not forget about the solid play that each of the players that we previously mentioned had.
