Dez Bryant has become a favorite of his quarterback

Dez Bryant has been on a roll the past six games and thus so have the Cowboys. Dallas is 5-1 in its past six, with Bryant catching 37 passes for 584 yards and eight touchdowns.

Bryant has been one of the league's top receivers in that span, having come a long way from earlier in the season when he still was having some trouble getting on the same page with quarterback Tony Romo. Now days, Bryant has joined tight end Jason Witten as Romo's favorite targets.

"I think Dez has just done a good job continuing to improve on the little things," Romo said Thursday. "He has always been able to make the splash plays, the big plays. Mostly he is just being where he needs to be on time. He knows what to look for defensively. He knows I want him at a certain spot at a certain time. He has done a good of continuing his growth as a receiver and getting into the details of what it takes to play at a high level week in and week out."

Romo is looking for Dez more instead of Witten. That's the main reason this team was winning games now.

The only thing different with Dez is Romo is finally starting to realize this guy has to get the football for this team to have a chance of winning games. Dez has always known what to do on the football field. The problem was Romo was always looking more for Witten. And this team wasn't winning games. Now Romo is looking for Dez more and we are winning games. It's Football 101. Get the ball to your playmakers. Dez is a playmaker..

DEz is one of the best players in the league. No doubt about it. Playing this game at Home like against PitifulOldBurgh has to be a big advantage. For one St George are nowhere near the same team on the road. Two St George do not like to tackle and have little to play for. Three Brees is much smaller than Ben Hamberger and less mobile. Four Brees is prone to multiple turnovers and the Dallas defence has been winning the turnover battle of late. Five St George do not really have a head coach and are just waiting to have the season end. Witten will get his pass catching record in this game and guys like Bryant, Murray and Harris will all have big games.
