Dez Bryant looked in midseason form Saturday night, with three catches for 59 yards and a touchdown. That in only two series of work, 14 plays.

Bryant beat Dominique Franks for a 31-yard touchdown in one-on-one coverage, outjumping the Ravens cornerback.

“Tony made the call, and he thought it was going to work,” Bryant said at halftime. “I can’t tell you the play, but he felt good with it. He wanted me to go get it, so I went and got it for him.”

Bryant praised new play-caller Scott Linehan, who called nine running plays with the first-team offense. The starting offense had 114 yards, though it had three negative plays with two holding penalties (Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick) and a lost fumble (Tony Romo on the exchange with DeMarco Murray).

“He wants to attack, and that’s exactly what we want to do,” Bryant said. “We want to step on their throat. Every time we get the ball, we want to make an impact, and that’s what I think we are going to do this year.”
