    Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is quite proud to have become the franchise’s single-season record-holder for touchdown receptions. But that’s not on his mind at the moment.

    Rather, Bryant’s focus is on the playoffs.

    "Oh man, it feels good [to set the record], but that’s not what I want," Bryant said, per Jean-Jacques Taylor of ESPN Dallas. "We’ve worked too hard and have got an opportunity to do something special. That’s on my mind."

    Bryant is eighth in the league in receiving yards, with 1,320. He leads the league in touchdown catches with 16.

    "Dez is really a remarkable player," said veteran tight end Jason Witten. "As a teammate, as leader, as a veteran guy, you take a lot of pride in seeing the growth of Dez and DeMarco mature as players. Dez is a unbelievable player, he's a dynamic player, and it's great to see his growth."
