2014-2015 GAME 4 RECAP - New Orleans vs. Dallas - Dez delivers Dallas’ “We Dat” dagger - Cowboys rout Rob Ryan’s Saints, 38-17 - Gameday videos - NFL Analysis

PHOTO — Dez Bryant wasn’t the Dallas Cowboys’ primary target. Entering the fourth quarter, he only had two catches for 26 yards.

“Whenever you get the opportunity, you got to take advantage of it,” Bryant said. “That’s exactly what happened. I put the dagger. Boom.”

Bryant was so pleased with Dallas’ 38-17 victory over New Orleans that he ran to the Cowboys locker room yelling, “We Dat!” Bryant was taking a shot at Saints fans and their popular cheer, “Who Dat?”
