Larry Fitzgerald Catch Draws Epic Twitter Response from Dez Bryant

Last night, the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Playoffs 26-20 in overtime – in a game that turned into an instant classic. While Cowboys Nation had the luxury of sitting back and watching the magic unfold, while leaving Arizona and Green Bay fans to sweat, there was one moment that sparked quite the reaction from the Dallas fanbase.
