Dez Bryant, being the great team leader that he is, skipped out on his teammates and walked off the field with 1:21 left in the game during the Dallas Cowboys’ 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Bryant was justifiably upset after Tony Romo was intercepted for the second possession in a row, but he cleared off the field and went into the tunnel before the game officially ended.
Everyone on Dallas’ sidelines had to be upset with the team for blowing a 26-3 halftime lead and 36-24 lead with under eight minutes left, but only Dez walked off early. I’m not sure why he can’t stick around with the rest of his guys until the end.
Shortly after the game ended, Bryant sent a tweet to address his actions:
I walked back to the locker room because I was emotional…it had nothing to do with my teammates we had it… We fought and didn't finish

There really is no excuse for this from Bryant. You win as a team, you lose as a team. And if you’re a team player, you don’t walk off the field because you’re disgusted.
