Dallas Cowboys fans compared Noah Brown’s catch vs. the Minnesota Vikings to Dez Bryant’s non-catch in the 2014 NFC Divisional Round.
The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Green Bay Packers back in Week 10, and they totally redeemed themselves the week prior when they took on the 8-1 Minnesota Vikings. The Cowboys dominated the Vikings from the start, entering halftime with a 23-3 lead, and they continued to pile on.
In the second half, the Cowboys were able to extend their lead to 37-3 on Ezekiel Elliott’s second one-yard touchdown run of the game. What set up that score was a 35-yard catch from wide receiver Noah Brown, which was under scrutiny as to whether it should be a catch or not.
After review, the call of a completed catch was upheld. That caused Cowboys fans to reminisce and say that Brown caught the ball, much like Dez Bryant did in the 2014 NFC Divisional Round against the Green Bay Packers.
Noah Brown’s catch vs. Vikings reminds Cowboys fans of Dez Bryant’s catch that was not ruled a catch
Of course, the Bryant catch that wasn’t really a catch happened late in Dallas’ playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. The throw from Tony Romo to Bryant was overturned, and subsequently resulted in Dallas losing the game and a chance to make it to the NFC Championship Game. There was the feeling that that season could have been where the Cowboys ended their Super Bowl drought.
Entering this game, Brown caught 26 passes for 342 yards and one touchdown on 43 targets.
Let’s be real here, whenever there is a catch like Browns’, everyone is going to be reminded of Bryant’s reception at Lambeau Field in the 2014 playoffs.
