No one’s ever accused Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant of being anything less than a fierce competitor.
So maybe it’s not that surprising that coming off the field after a modest four-catch, 73-yard performance in the 33-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Bryant reminded everyone that the Cowboys have a chance for redemption just around the corner.
“Two weeks,” Bryant yelled, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “Two Weeks.”
Bryant, who has 952 yards and 10 touchdowns on 67 catches this season, made clear that he’s not looking past next week’s matchup with the Bears. But he’s glad to know the Cowboys won’t have to wait long to face their division rivals again, and have a chance to get the bad taste of Thanksgiving Day out of their mouth.
“I’m not really mad at all,” Bryant said of Thursday’s loss. “They beat us. I’m going to accept that and I’m not trying to look past Chicago. But I can’t wait to go up there and play them again.
