Jim Schwartz was fired up to shut down Dez Bryant in 2nd half

Dez Bryant got the best of the Detroit Lions early in Sunday’s game as the talented wide receiver caught two touchdown passes while the Dallas Cowboys opened up a 27-3 advantage.

But it was the Lions and coach Jim Schwartz who got in the final word.

And some other words too.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Fox cameras showed Schwartz yelling an expletive at Bryant after a would-be catch was overturned along the Lions’ sideline following a replay challenge. Schwartz was signaling incomplete in the process.

“What the heck is going on out there?" Fox analyst Troy Aikman said at the time.

Schwartz was asked about his emotion following the replay challenge during his Monday press conference.

“I don't think Dez Bryant had a catch after about midway through the first quarter," Schwartz said.
