    In the wake of the Dallas Cowboys’ Divisional Round loss to the Green Bay Packers, head coach Jason Garrett made clear that he didn’t want to discuss Dez Bryant’s catch that wasn’t.

    As you might remember, Bryant made a 31-yard catch on a 4th-and-2 to put the Cowboys at the Packers’ one-yard line, but on review it was determined that he hadn’t controlled the ball throughout the process of going to the ground. The call was reversed, giving the Packers the ball back. Four minutes later, the game was over.

    "We had an opportunity to go up there and play 60 minutes off football and there were 56 minutes of football played before that catch and four minutes of football played after that catch," Garrett said Sunday, per ESPN Dallas. "And we didn't get the job done. That's what we have to live with. Dez is a great football player and he made a lot of great catches for us throughout his career. He'll make many more in the future.

    As a football team, we don't want to focus on that. I think we're talking about the wrong stuff if we're talking about that catch. We had a great opportunity to go up there and we didn't get the job done."

    Garrett still wasn’t ready to discuss the call on Tuesday.

    "Yeah, I don't want to get into the catch thing," he said.
