Maligned Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett said every one was thinking after catching three passes for 31 yards.
It was a season high output for Bennett, one that he admittedly needed, considering his drops earlier in the season.
"I needed a game like that," Bennett said. "I get stuck in a role of block, block, block...I am thankful to make some plays when I got the opportunity. I know people don't think I have good hands," Bennett said. "But I have pretty good hands. These hands are great."
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett commended Bennett for his play on Sunday. Jones hopes it’s the beginning of hot streak for his big tight end.
"I've told him he’s probably a big-time play away, a couple big-time plays with his confidence, of really taking some of the how he's viewed and turning that around,” Jones said. “And we know he blocks good."
