Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant optimistic they found their strength in loss against Broncos
“I feel damned good about the way we played. I just feel like if we keep doing that, we can stack some wins up,” he said.
Bryant said the offense could learn from the game and implement what they did back there in the future. He said the strategy to stay aggressive and try to score at any possible opening was definitely what the offense needs to keep doing. Bryant scored two touchdowns and caught six passes for 141 yards.
“I think what we take from it is how explosive we played, the mindset that we had – to go out there and try to score on every possession. I think we did a great job of that,” he said. “It ain’t like we played some mediocre team. We just have to build on the success and learn from those mistakes that we made.”
The wide receiver said that the Cowboys knew they were going up against a very well-coordinated offense and one of the best quarterbacks in the entire league when they faced the Denver Broncos. Even so, they didn’t back down and give up but stayed in the game and fought.
“It was to fight, fight, fight. We knew it was going to be a battle going in. Like I said, we weren’t going to back down, and we didn’t,” Bryant said. “Like I said, we just have to take care of some minor things, which I feel like, each and every week, those minor things are decreasing. So we’ve just got to keep on. We’ve got to stack plays on top of plays – good plays.”
Even though the Cowboys didn’t give a consistent performance, their aggressive nature and willingness to try and score on any opportunity was something that definitely stood out. Bryant noted that the team made a somewhat comeback from 35-20.
“We were explosive. We didn’t back down like everybody expected us to. We went in at halftime, 28-20, and they came back out and scored. It was 35-20,” he said. "I know a lot of people thought we were going to fold. Terrance came back over the top, 82 yards, big-yard play for a TD, big post route.”
