Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford scored the winning touchdown with 12 seconds left, prompting Bryant to get into an argument with tight end Jason Witten and defensive end DeMarcus Ware.
“They just wanted me to calm down a little bit just because y’all had seen what happened,” Bryant said. “(Stafford) scored at the end of the game, man. I’m like, ‘Who wouldn’t be pissed?’”
“The only reason why I don’t care is because the passion is all about winning. It’s all about winning, I promise. Everybody knows we should’ve won this game. A game like this, man, it kills you.”
Bryant had a nice afternoon and finished with 72 yards and two touchdowns, but Lions receiver Calvin Johnson was the real star of the game as he went for 14 catches for 329 yards and a touchdown. Johnson’s yardage total was the second highest in NFL history.
Dallas quarterback Tony Romo defended Bryant’s sideline shenanigans.
“He’s a competitive guy,” Romo said. “He’s never complained to me about getting the ball. He knows that the ball is going to go where it’s supposed to. When you guys sometimes see emotions from Dez, it’s just trying to ‘rah rah’ more than it is being a ‘me’ guy.”
Earlier in the week, Bryant made comments which some took to mean that he was comparing his skill set to that of Johnson.
“When I told y’all it wasn’t a comparison, and I told you to take a different route with it, that’s fine,” Bryant said. “This is a team sport. (Johnson) had a hell of a game. He did some great stuff out there -- outstanding, seriously.”
