The Dallas Cowboys were attempting to hang on to a late lead against the NFC East rival New York Giants on Sunday Night Football at AT&T Stadium when star wide receiver Dez Bryant went down with a leg injury that left him in obvious pain.

Bryant was sort of the first-down marker and had his ankle rolled up on and he was clearly frustrated when he made his way back to the sideline. The Gatorade cooler and water bottles received the brunt of Bryant’s outrage.

The good news for Dallas is that the defense was able to come up big again to force their sixth turnover of the game. Brandon Carr picked off Eli Manning after Da’Rel Scott tipped a pass into his hands and he took it all the way back for a touchdown to ice the game.

Even better for Dallas is that Bryant returned to the field when the team went for two after Carr’s pick-six, so the injury was not as serious as it could have been.
