It took just two weeks after returning from a foot injury for Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant to re-establish himself as the most dominant wide receiver in the NFL.
Needing a touchdown early in the fourth quarter in response to a 21-14 deficit to the Philadelphia Eagles, Cowboys backup QB Matt Cassel was in a bind with the Eagles defender crowding around him. With all of his receivers downfield, Cassel simply chucked the ball into the endzone hoping the Eagles would not pick it off.
Instead, the ball was picked up by Dez Bryant – fresh off six-week recovery from a Week One foot injury – who snatched it away from the angling Eagles defenders to make one of the best TD grabs of the season.
Ultimately though, the play would end up being a footnote as the game went into overtime where the Eagles won on their first possession thanks to a TD from QB Sam Bradford to WR Jordan Matthews.
Nonetheless, Bryant finished the game with 5 catches for 104 yards – a whopping 20.8 yards per catch. Absolutely incredible.
