Dez Bryant Says The Cowboys Are The Only Team That Could’ve Beaten The Falcons
When the NFL postseason began, the Atlanta Falcons were the most slept-on team, until they proceeded to destroy the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC divisional round. Most people were looking at a Cowboys-Falcons NFC Championship game, but the Green Bay Packers had other plans as Aaron Rodgers willed his team to a victory in the final seconds over the Cowboys.
The Falcons destroyed the Seahawks by 16 and the Packers by 23, but according to Dez Bryant, the reason the Falcons had such an easy time getting to the Super Bowl is because they didn’t have to face the Cowboys.
Dez Bryant: “I’m not being biased because I play for the Cowboys, but I think we’re the only team that had a shot to beat the Falcons.”

That was definitely biased, but Dallas never got the chance to prove that because they couldn’t defeat the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round with home-field advantage.
