Dez Bryant laments refs’ decision: ‘It was a catch’
Dez Bryant wants an explanation from the referees.
The Cowboys wide receiver hauled in a pass against the Packers that would have put Dallas in position for a go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
Originally ruled a catch, the refs overturned the play after review, saying Bryant didn’t complete the process of the catch coming to the ground. It helped the Packers hold on for a 26-21 win.
Bryant, emotional after the game, disagreed, and said the refs robbed the Cowboys.
"It was a catch …They took it away, so obviously it’s because of them," he said. "I had possession of the ball coming down."
