NFL gives Bryant 11-yard loss on fumble, dropping him under 100 yards receiving against Giants

The NFL made a scoring change on the Dez Bryant catch and fumble in the fourth quarter. He is now credited with minus-11 yards on the play, instead of a 5-yard catch.

Bryant caught the ball, fumbled after a 5-yard gain, and it went out of bounds, staying with the Cowboys. It was a 20-yard loss, but the league gave Bryant the loss of yardage to the point where the ball was touched by the Giants' Terrell Thomas before going out of bounds (9 yards later).

So instead of finishing with 102 receiving yards, Bryant will now have 86 receiving yards.

Quarterback Tony Romo lost 16 yards in total passing yards as well. His total dropped from 250 to 234.
