The Dallas Cowboys got an early Christmas present form the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday when the Eagles went into the Metrodome and got hosed by Minnesota. This put Dallas in a situation late in the day to move into a first place tie with Philadelphia and doing so meant beating the Green Bay Packers.
Dez Bryant apparently really wanted to do that today and produced one of the most amazing touchdown catches we’ve seen all season long. Late in the game, with the Cowboys lead dwindling fast, Bryant gave the Cowboys the boost they needed when he caught a Tony Romo touchdown pass in the back of the endzone in spectacular fashion. Not only did he leap over a Packers defender but he stayed in bounds, didn’t bobble the ball and made a clean catch out of a dirty coverage situation.
The catch was not only a huge boost in the score but it lifted the Cowboys and their fans from what was happening. Before the touchdown catch, the Cowboys were falling into one of their characteristic meltdowns. After the catch, Cowboys fans have yet another highlight reel catch from their top wide receiver and perhaps the catch of the week, if not the year, from Bryant.
