Washington CBs Think Familiarity Gives Them Edge Against Dez

Monday Night will mark the 10th time Dez Bryant has faced the Washington Redskins

In nine career games against the Washington Redskins, Dez Bryant has gone over the 100-yard mark just once, on Thanksgiving Day of 2012.

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall believes the team has been helped by their familiarity with the All-Pro.

“I think we have a little different perspective going against him because all of us have got a chance to really play against him and know him personally as far as how he likes to run routes and things like that,” Hall told Washington’s official website. “Just from experience standpoint, I think it’ll give us a little edge.”

Last season as a rookie, Redskins corner Bashed Breeland held Bryant to three catches and 30 yards on Monday Night Football.

“He’s a very tough receiver once he has the ball in his hands,” Breeland said. “He’s a very good back shoulder receiver. He has good body control and great hands. He knows how to protect the ball. … You’ve got to play physical with him and get in his grill. Don’t allow him to get going.”
