Sunday Blitz: Cowboys-Packers Recap



The Dallas Cowboys found themselves trailing the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round match up. The Cowboys found themselves in a fourth down situation and in a short-yardage situation and quarterback Tony Romo inexplicably went deep to a covered Dez Bryant.

Bryant seemed to elevate and catch the ball and make a huge play to keep the drive alive.

This is another angle:


The play was challenged and inexplicably overturned in what is going to be a hotly debated call over the next few days. The general consensus seems to be that it was a catch.


Even New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr thought it was a catch.
