Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant was limited to three catches for 44 yards against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night. Granted, 18 of those came on a touchdown pass, but that didn’t happen until late in the fourth quarter.
Bryant is just fine with this, as it freed up second-year Baylor product Terrance Williams to lead the team in receiving with six catches, 77 yards and two touchdown catches.
“The more they disrespect him they more he’ll dominate,” Bryant told the team’s official website. “That’s what it is.”
According to Bryant, this “whoever’s open” mindset runs through the Cowboys’ receiving corps.
“That’s just the attitude we have with the wideouts,” Bryant said. “If we get the opportunity, we’re going to dominate. We want to be the upper echelon. We want to be the backbone of making plays.”
