Dez Bryant eyes Pro Bowl, but focus on Redskins
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING, Texas -- The NFL will announce its Pro Bowl teams tonight, and there appear to be two certain locks: Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware and tight end Jason Witten.
The other potential candidate is wide receiver Dez Bryant.
He's scored a touchdown in the last seven games, he's third in the NFL in scoring (138 points), tied for eighth in catches (88) and is eighth in yards (1,311).
"To be honest, it's really not a thought," Bryant said after Wednesday's practice. "I will be happy. Who wouldn't be? I'm really more concerned with the Redskins."
Yes, the Redskins are the Cowboys opponent on Sunday from FedEx Field with the winner clinching the NFC East. The Redskins can still get in the postseason with combined losses by the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings in the regular season finale.
The Cowboys can only reach the postseason by winning the division title.
"Not only me, but I think everybody is excited, everybody knows what is at stake," Bryant said. "We all know that I think we are going in and our best in practice and in the film room and see how we do on Sunday."
