Dez Bryant played Sunday's game against Pittsburgh with a heavy heart. Just 24-hours prior to kickoff, the star receiver for the Dallas Cowboys found out that his father passed away.

Knowing that, Bryant had his best game of the season thus far. Dez had 6 catches for 116 yards and a touchdown.

Immediately after scoring the touchdown, Bryant looked up to the heavens and acknowledged that one was for his father.

After the game, Bryant was given the game ball by Coach Jason Garret as his teammates surrounded him in their locker room.

You can see what Dez had to say about his father in the message above. The Dallas Cowboys currently have the best record in the NFL at 8-1.
