Dez Bryant is still trying to figure out how his fourth-down, fourth-quarter catch was ruled incomplete.
With 4 minutes, 42 seconds left in the game and facing a fourth and 2 at the Green Bay 32, Dallas went for it.
Tony Romo threw a deep pass to Dez Bryant, who outjumped Sam Shields for the ball at the 5 yard line. He took three steps on the way to the ground then juggled the ball after hitting the ground while stretching for the end zone. It was ruled a catch at the 1.
Green Bay challenged and the play was reversed as incomplete because Bryant didn’t maintain possession of the ball through the catch.

“I didn’t even understand why it was even a challenge,” Bryant said. “I took three steps. You seen that right?
“I caught it. I came down with it and tried to reach for the goal line. Clearly, it’s a catch. There’s no question, man.”
Dallas never got the ball again and Green Bay ran out the clock.
“I already knew it was mine. I knew it was mine. I knew it was mine,” Bryant said. “We got the coverage we wanted and we made the play.”
