Dez Bryant hasn’t had a healthy season in two-plus years.
He only had two catches in his team’s 28-17 victory over Arizona on Monday night, but it’s one Cowboys fans, and the eight Cardinals defenders who tried to keep him out of the end zone, won’t soon forget.
With the game tied at seven, Bryant caught a pass at the Arizona 12-yard line, with a wall of red eager to rip his head off standing between the former All-Pro and the end zone.
Bryant, with a little bit of late help from his offensive line, danced around and/or powered through every one of those defenders.

The play rightly sent the Monday Night Football broadcast crew into a tizzy, and had a similar effect on Twitter.

Dak Prescott: I don’t think we’ll have a more impressive TD this season than the one I just scored
Dez Bryant: Hold my beer

It was a day of tough TDs for Dallas.
After a brutal start to the game that saw the Cowboys punt on their first three possessions, the Cowboys finally broke through late in the first half, when quarterback Dak Prescott flipped over Cardinals defenders to tie the game with his first rushing score of the season.
