The Dallas Cowboys take on the Green Bay Packers in a rematch of the 2015 NFL playoffs. You know what that means. A week long discussion about whether or not Dez Bryant did indeed make the catch late in the fourth quarter the last time these two teams faced each other in the postseason.
The Cowboys were trailing 26-21 at the time and the pass was initially ruled complete with Bryant down on the one yard line. It was later overturned, and the Cowboys went on to lose the game.
It appeared Bryant had the ball took two to three steps and went to the ground when the ball popped out. The initial ruling was overturned as it was deemed Bryant did not maintain control of the football when he hit the ground.
Bryant pleaded his case to ESPN after the game. “All I know is I had possession, I had possession of the ball coming down. That’s possession, right? One, two, reach. Bam, that’s possession,” Bryant told ESPN.
They say time heals all wounds, but Cowboys fans are still hurting over this play two years later. Bryant and the Cowboys have an opportunity for redemption at AT&T Stadium on Sunday. Dallas enters the contest as a four point favorite.
