The officials in the Dallas Cowboys-New York Giants game overturned what would have been a go-ahead touchdown catch by Dez Bryant after determining the receiver’s hand was out of bounds before his body landed in.
Bryant made a beautiful leaping grab for a 37-yard pass from Tony Romo in the end zone. The touchdown had the Cowboys up 30-29 on the Giants, but after reviewing the play, the officials correctly determined that Bryant’s fingers were on the sidelines before any other part of his body touched the ground and they overturned the call.
Dallas attempted three more passes but was unable to score and lost a heartbreaker 29-24.
Fans had been waiting for Dez Bryant to have a huge impact for the Cowboys, and it looked like he had come up with the big catch to save the team. Unfortunately, he missed being the hero by a matter of inches. Bryant finished with 5 catches for 110 yards. Tony Romo had one touchdown and four interceptions, yet he almost pulled it out. Almost doesn’t count for squat though. The Giants are now 6-2 while the Cowboys are 3-4.
