Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant had a nice day on Sunday, but he left Baltimore on a sour note, having dropped an on-target pass that would have equaled a game-tying two-point conversion. Bryant demonstratively called for a flag directly afterward, claiming he was interfered with, but to no avail.
Afterward, Ravens’ cornerback Cary Williams, who covered Bryant on the play, had a message for the young receiver: Man up.
“He needs to step up and be a man," Williams said, per ESPN Dallas. "You can’t be a baby about stuff. You’ve got to man up. It’s one-on-one. Mano-a-mano. I got you. Sometimes you’re going to win. Sometimes you’re going to lose.
"You’ve just got to be a man and accept responsibility, give credit where credit is due. If it was me, I’d say, you know what, he made the play and I didn’t. Bottom line. Don’t complain and look for a flag, man.”
For what it’s worth, the telecast of the game showed around 407 replays of the play in question, and we didn’t see much that could be considered pass interference.
