Dez Bryant took a swipe at Jason Garrett late in the fourth quarter as the Dallas Cowboys tried to come back against the New England Patriots.

Right after Garrett opted to kick a field goal from the New England 11-yard line on 4th-and-7 with roughly six minutes left in the game, Bryant hit up his Twitter account.

Bryant hasn’t been shy about blasting Garrett in the past, so it’s hardly surprising that he took the opportunity to lay into him for this decision. But it’s not just sour grapes. Many who watch the game for a living were just as critical of Garrett for his decision there.

Quite aside from being ultra-conservative where others may be bold, Garrett and his coaching staff clearly has been out-maneuvered by Bill Belichick and Co. most of Sunday’s game. The Patriots aren’t exactly lighting things up offensively, but still hold a 13-9 lead late in this game.
