Cowboys vs. Redskins: Dez Bryant scores to salvage fantasy day

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Dez Bryant turned around his otherwise quiet Thanksgiving game with one monster play.

It's funny how the entire narrative of a game can change on just one play. Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was mostly having a quiet Thanksgiving game against the Redskins as the Cowboys were getting blown out 28-6 at home.

That all turned around at 1:38 in the third quarter, when Bryant took an 85-yard catch-and-run to pay dirt, cutting the deficit to 28-13 and greatly improving his fantasy stat line.

At the time of this writing, Bryant has four receptions on six targets for 109 yards and the touchdown. Take away that one play, and his numbers would be very disappointing.

Fantasy owners will be happy with the score, but the Cowboys are still putting up a massive turkey of a performance.
