Dez Bryant welcomes physical play from Giants defensive backs

The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants are set to face off in an important NFC East match up on Sunday afternoon as the two teams fight to keep pace with the Philadelphia Eagles atop the division.

Previously, the Giants defensive backs had said that they plan to get physical with Bryant to knock him off of his routes and rhythm, but Bryant is not scared off by their comments and he is welcoming the New York secondary to bring it at him in Week 12.

“You know, whatever that gets them motivated, all I know is Sunday, I’m going to play my game,” Bryant said, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We, us — as a team, as well — are coming out playing our game.”

Bryant has been slowed down the past few weeks thanks to bracket coverage from opposing secondaries, but he seems confident moving forward.

If the Giants plan to rely solely on physical play, they could find themselves in serious trouble once Bryant breaks loose from the line of scrimmage and gets in open space downfield.
