Dez Bryant Punched Right In The Face During Crazy Rams-Cowboys Brawl
Plenty of players on both sides got into the scuffle, with mini fights breaking out all over the field. However, it looks like Dallas' star wideout, Dez Bryant, got the worst of it.
Bryant was in the middle of the fray -- with no helmet on -- when he got popped square in the face by Zach Laskey.

After the fight, Dez tweeted he wished he took a "cheap shot" at Laskey, but he quickly deleted the tweet.

Then with both benches rushing onto the field, it was on like Donkey Kong.
What a thrill for the fans in attendance, who quickly saw the action get closer to them than they ever expected.

Question: Why didn't someone on the Cowboys staff hold Dez Bryant back when there was a chance?

In case you were wondering, these two teams do NOT play each other during the 2015 regular season, which is probably why they had their "Royal Rumble" yesterday.
