Dez Bryant has been the center of attention in Dallas ever since he came into the NFL just three seasons ago. 2012 started as a struggle for this Dallas Cowboy as he didn’t reach the end zone at all in the month of September. The Cowboys struggled in this stretch and it’s no secret why. Bryant has since produced like no other NFC wide receiver. Here is why he will play such a large role in the season finale versus the Washington Redskins.
If the Week 12 match up is any kind of prelude to what Bryant will do on Sunday Night, Cowboys fans should be excited. Torching the Skins for 145 yards on just eight catches Bryant was still not able to bring a win for Dallas, at home. This time on the road, the Redskins secondary must clamp down on the all too explosive wide receiver. While at Oklahoma State University Bryant always dazzled with big play making abilities, that has correlated to the NFL. Redskins corner Deangelo Hall loves to take risks and will have his hands full along with safety Madieu Williams.
Tony Romo obviously likes throwing to #88 as Bryant has hauled in 88 receptions through 15 games. Romo has turned it on of late and it has a direct correlation with the standout performances by Bryant. Since the Week 12 match up with the Redskins, Romo has thrown ten touchdowns compared to just one interception. If Romo continues this pace I have no doubts the Cowboys could easily be hoisting a Lombardi Trophy come February.
Bottom line, keep an eye out for Dez Bryant in this season finale against the Redskins. His production is unparalleled to wide receivers around the NFC.
