Why Dez Bryant left the Packers-Cowboys game early

BY foxsports • December 15, 2013

Dez Bryant had a typical Dez Bryant game Sunday against the Packers.

He made some huge plays, including a stunning TD grab that gave the Cowboys a 12-point lead with just under eight minutes remaining. But those moments will probably be overshadowed by his decision to leave the game and head to the locker room with 1:21 left.

That happened right after Tony Romo threw an interception that all but ended the game. But still, leaving when there is still time left on the clock is not cool.

He took to Twitter after the game to explain his controversial move:

Now that's a weird explanation that makes little sense.

People on Twitter were not impressed.

Two Tony Romo interceptions in the fourth quarter, Dez leaving with time left on the clock, and another epic collapse by the Cowboys. In other words - just your typical Sunday in Big D.
