WATCH: This one play proves that Cowboys’ Dez Bryant is back

Dez Bryant was matched up with Richard Sherman for most of Week 8, and Bryant got the best of Sherman on this play.

The Dallas Cowboys totaled just 91 passing yards in their Week 8 13-12 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and wide receiver Dez Bryant finished with just two catches for 12 yards. However, on this one play, we saw what needed to — Bryant's unique explosion after the catch is back and he will only get better.

Sherman got the best of Bryant for most of the day — as Bryant was only able to reel in 2-of-6 targets, but that's to be expected in his first game back against one of the NFL's best cornerbacks.

Bryant will get better as he develops a rapport with Matt Cassel and as he gets healthier. Keep an eye on his practice status this week, but Bryant escaped without an injury.
