Cowboys' Dez Bryant scores 50-yard TD (GIF)


The Dez Bryant and Calvin Johnson match up just got a lot more interesting. The Detroit Lions’ Johnson has really outperformed Bryant all game long. Johnson has 11 catches for 284 yards and one touchdown so far today. Dez Bryant had 2 catches for 22 yards before this 50-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo.

“I believe I can do whatever he can do,” Bryant said. “I think it’s just a pride thing. When it comes to football, just being on the field, it’s a mind-set and having a mentality. I honestly believe when I’m there, I’ll be feeling like there’s nothing I can’t do.”

He might not be replicating his production in catches and yards, but he has given the Cowboys the lead with his second touchdown of the game.
