Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) fumbles the ball after being hit by Giants free safety Will Hill during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday.
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant ended up having a nice game against the Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium but for a while, he was left “heartbroken” by a fourth quarter fumble that cost Dallas 20 yards and essentially killed a drive. He had already allowed a Tony Romo pass to bounce off his hands and into the hands of Antrel Rolle for Romo’s lone interception on the day.
“That’s not like me,” Bryant said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I have to stay focused and concentrate on the ball. Me, I’m evaluating myself. I have to do better in that area. I think it’s more concentration, and I’m going to stay on that and get better.”
Bryant found his redemption on the Cowboys’ game-winning drive, when he hauled in three of his nine catches. He finished with 102 yards.
“I didn’t get too down on myself,” Bryant said. “I had to keep myself together because those guys were believing in me, and I was believing in me. I had to keep my composure and go out there and play my game.”
