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."
