The Cowboys took a 13-7 lead over the Lions late in the third quarter, but Dallas receiver Dez Bryant was not happy.
Bryant flipped out on the sideline, screaming at quarterback Tony Romo as well as receivers coach Derek Dooley and anyone else who crossed his path. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett tried to get Bryant to calm down.
It’s not clear exactly what had Bryant upset, but it may be the fact that he only caught two passes for 22 yards in the game’s first three quarters. Bryant said last week that he can do whatever Detroit’s Calvin Johnson can do, but Johnson has nine catches for 221 yards so far. However, Johnson also has a fumble, one of four Detroit turnovers.
The Cowboys’ offense, which lost guard Brian Waters to a triceps injury, has struggled all game. Bryant isn’t the only one on that offense who has a reason to be upset. Still, the Cowboys lead 13-10 in the fourth quarter.
