Dez Bryant thought he was interfered with on two-point drop
After Bryant’s second touchdown catch with 32 seconds remaining, Tony Romo threw Bryant another back-shoulder fade on a potential tying two-point conversion. The ball bounced off Bryant’s chest and to the turf in the end zone.
Bryant believes Ravens cornerback Cary Williams should have been flagged for pass interference on the play. Bryant had not seen a replay, but he thought Williams wrapped his arm around him and broke up the pass with his forearm.
“I felt like it was a PI, my opinion,” Bryant said. “It could have went either way. Not saying I couldn’t catch it, because I can make difficult catches. I just feel like he put his arm around me.”
That wasn’t the way Jones viewed the play. The owner otherwise had high praise for Bryant’s 95-yard performance, but Jones cited poor technique as the problem on the failed two-point conversion.
“Catch those balls in your hands, put your thumbs together and catch them in your hands,” Jones said. “If you let that ball kind of cradle it, which he does and catches about 99 percent of everything that you’re not supposed to catch, that catches up with him when the ball gets in there to your body like that rather than have your hands and your thumbs together.”
