Dez caught it! I repeat, Dez Bryant made a seemingly impossible touchdown catch against the Lions.

And it wasn't just any catch. Bryant made a one-handed juggling 25-yard touchdown catch to tie Monday night's game 21-21 just before halftime. Bryant made the amazing catch while being tackled by Lions cornerback Johnson Bademosi.

Bademosi was called on a pass interference penalty while Bryant got away with facemask just before he hauled in the pass while tumbling into the end zone. 

Luckily, this Dez catch didn't get reversed.

But Bryant's spectacular feats didn't stop there. During a trick play in the third quarter, Bryant threw his first career touchdown pass on a 10-yard lob to tight end Jason Witten to extend the Cowboys' lead to 35-21. Dallas went on to win the game, 42-21.

After making the TD catch, Witten busted out Dez's trademark 'X' celebration -- much to Bryant's amusement.

"He told me he was going to do it and that was one of the best feelings," Bryant said after the game. "I got to complete a pass to him. That's a Hall of Famer. I just thought it was pretty cool. That's one of those moments that's going to forever be with me.

"It was pretty cool, ya know, to have two touchdown catches and throw one ... yeah, that's cool."
