Despite failing to reach the end zone, the 25-year-old Bryant finished with nine receptions for 102 yards and helped Dallas consistently move the chains.
Healthy and no longer battling a bummed back, Bryant’s now caught 61 pigskins for 851 yards and eight scores over 11 games.
The freakish 6-foot-2, 218 pound Bryant is an absolutely menacing physical force who can overwhelm defenders with strength, size and speed.
Born to a rock peddler, the native Texan’s been accused of acting violently and lacking responsibility.
Although still prone to needless sideline antics and outbursts, Bryant’s seemingly maturing and concentrating strictly on football.
As a unit, the Cowboys are tied with Philadelphia atop the NFC East at 6-5 and fielding the league’s fifth deadliest attack.
Individually, Bryant, who endured a horrific upbringing, is shining on the gridiron.
Dallas is loaded with playmakers and Miles Austin’s return will make opponents hesitant to double-team Bryant.
Accordingly, expect Tony Romo and Dez Bryant to feast on the Raiders’ substandard defense Thursday in Arlington.by
