Dez Bryant flagged for arguing with refs

By Ross Jones,

Dez Bryant came unhinged after pass interference was called on him on a key third down in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game between the Vikings and Cowboys.

Bryant, who got into a heated sideline discussion last week, took off his helmet while yelling at the referees after being flagged for pass interference. That act cost the Cowboys 15 yards — the other 15-yard penalty was declined — and placed them outside of Dan Bailey’s field-goal range.

The most amusing part? Vikings defensive end Jared Allen in the background laughing hysterically.

Fortunately for the Cowboys, the Vikings didn’t take advantage of the extra possession. Christian Ponder would throw an interception to Cowboys defensive back Orlando Scandrick.
