Dez Bryant: I live for these kinds of moments

The battle between the Detroit Lions' defensive front and the Dallas Cowboys' offensive line is stealing the attention in advance of Sunday afternoon's Wild Card battle.

However, perhaps the biggest advantage on the field for the Cowboys is Dez Bryant facing the Lions' cornerbacks.

In a sit down with Michael Irvin, which aired Sunday on NFL Network's NFL GameDay First, Bryant said he knows that he'll have the advantage in the matchup.

"Nine times out 10, I know I'm feeling better than the guy across from me," he said. "I feel like I live for this, I want to be in these kind of moments.

Bryant scored 12 touchdowns over the last 10 games while leading the NFL with 16 scores for the season. The wideout has been unstoppable in the red zone and his combination of size, speed and run-after-the-catch ability gives him an advantage over just about every defense on the planet.

Last season against the Lions, Bryant scored two touchdowns and had 72 yards on just three receptions. This is a different Detroit defense under coordinator Teryl Austin, but Bryant believes that the Cowboys can beat anyone the way they are playing.

"Whenever everybody is on the same page and we all want the same thing, I think it's just hard to beat a team like that," he said.
