Bryant-Sherman marks showdown of mutual respect - IRVING, Texas (AP) — For all the drama Dez Bryant created on and off the field early in his career, the Dallas receiver has never really had a public spat with a high-profile rival.
Tony Romo's top target isn't going to start with Richard Sherman, the talented Seattle cornerback who's been known to call out opposing receivers in pointed ways.
The timing might have had a little to do with it because Bryant had just made one of the best catches of his career — a leaping, juggling 37-yarder on third down to set up the winning field goal in a 20-17 overtime victory against Houston.
The Cowboys bring a surprising record and NFL rusher leader DeMarco Murray to Seattle (3-1), and the matchup of Murray against the league's top rushing defense is certainly a talker.
The Cowboys have generally been better when they've found ways to get the ball to Bryant, whose 44 scoring catches through 64 games are more than twice what Drew Pearson had and 15 more than Michael Irvin at the same point in the careers of those No. 88s for Dallas.
While the fifth-year receiver had a petty sideline moment as recently as last season when he went to the locker room before the clock expired in a loss to Green Bay, he usually dances away from headline-grabbing sound bites.
