The Cowboys weren’t at risk of Dez Bryant having another sideline outburst yesterday.

Because he was already headed to the locker room before the game was over.

The Cowboys wide receiver walked to the locker room alone with 1:21 left in yesterday’s stunning loss to the Packers. He waited until replay confirmed Tony Romo’s game-clinching interception, but then stormed off to leave his teammates to watch the Packers kill the clock.

According to Calvin Watkins of, Bryant told reporters he was too upset to talk about it after the game, but took to Twitter last night to say he was “emotional.”

“It’s an emotional game,” Romo said. “You get to the end there, obviously, it’s not fun for any of us to lose a football game. It’s not an enjoyable process the way it ends, no matter how it ends. It’s always tough emotionally so it is what it is.”

Bryant had an excellent game prior to that, with 11 receptions for 153 yards and a touchdown.

But leaving his teammates at a low moment will make those stats fade from memory, and add context the next time he decides to make a spectacle of himself.
