Dez Bryant Speaks On Controversial Incompletion


With a full slate of intriguing matchups, none screams must-see TV more than Cowboys-Packers. First of all, you have ‘America’s team’, who looks poised to win their first Super Bowl championship in 21 years and then you have some guy named Aaron Rodgers who’s lighting up the football world.

Also, you have the mystique of Dez Bryant’s controversial play against Green Bay in the playoffs two years ago. The potential touchdown was ruled incomplete, but many believe it was and should’ve been ruled a catch.

With Sunday’s matchup looming, Bryant was asked about that play.

“Hey, man, we’re not going to talk about the catch,” Bryant said. “Nah, we’re not going to talk about the catch. Yeah, of course, it was tough. It was heartbreaking. It ended our season.”

While Bryant doesn’t want to talk about it anymore, the all-pro receiver can’t run away from it.

“Everywhere I go, I still hear it until this day, ‘It was a catch. It was a catch,’ ” Bryant said. “Still to this day they be like, ‘It’s January blah, blah, blah, 2017, 3:29 p.m. and I just want the world to know that Dez Bryant still caught it.’ It’s funny.”

When Sunday comes, Cowboys fans are hopeful Bryant is able to shake those 2014 demons loose en route to a berth in the NFC Championship Game.
