Dez Bryant had only two catches at halftime. He could have complained.
But he didn’t.
“It’s a mental thing,” he said. “You just have to stay focused, because it’s coming. I know when you all see me being hyped up – I feel like I have to do that; just because I think that’s just something that we need. And that’s just me. There’s no pretending, there’s no acting, there’s no hard feelings toward anybody. Just want to keep guys motivated.”
Bryant caught six passes in the second half, finishing with eight for 110 yards, as the Cowboys got going, perhaps not by coincidence, in the second half.
“We had to slow it down, get our mind right – we did that, and things started clicking for us,” Bryant said. “And we came out with this win.”
Bryant went without a touchdown catch for only the second time this year, but he felt good about how the offense didn’t get impatient even as the game was scoreless into the second quarter.
“We felt good throughout the whole game,” he said. “It didn’t look like it, but us as a team, we felt good. I think the focus and the concentration that we had was to come out in the second half, and I think we showed it and got out with that W.”
