GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Dez Bryant stood near the sideline with a look of disbelief, hands raised to his head.
The 31-yard catch to the 1 in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter was reversed, and that helped knock the Dallas Cowboys out of the playoffs.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was at Lambeau Field to watch his beloved Cowboys, and he couldn’t believe the call. The reaction from the governor, who was wearing his lucky orange sweater, was priceless.
DeMarco Murray ran for 123 yards on 25 carries and an efficient Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes, but the Cowboys squandered an eight-point lead in the third quarter to fall 26-21 on Sunday to the Green Bay Packers. It was the first loss on the road this season for Dallas after going 8-0 in the regular season.
Bryant finished with three catches for 38 yards.
The 31-yard catch overturned on video replay upset Bryant the most.
