On Thursday, the Dallas Cowboys celebrated Thanksgiving with a 31-26 win against the Washington Redskins.
One of the main battles of the night was between Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and Redskins cornerback Josh Norman. The two scuffled throughout the game, but it was Bryant who came out on top, as he caught five of seven targets and accumulated 72 yards.
The 28-year-old wideout made a comment about his opponent as he went back to the Dallas locker room that is bound to ruffle some more feathers in their new rivalry.

Bryant said in regard to Norman: "Better tell Washington to get their money back.” Oh, snap!
And everyone thought it would be New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. that would be Norman's biggest rival in the NFC East when his move to Washington was confirmed earlier this year.

The two even had a confrontation after the game had finished on the field and had to be separated. It's going to be fun watching this rivalry over the next couple of seasons!
The Cowboys now have a week break before they play against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, while the Redskins play a week on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Until then, Bryant has promised to tweet out game film on how he exposed Norman on Thursday night which is bound to be entertaining.
Bryant said according to USA Today: "You supposed to be a lockdown corner, and you can't even play man-to-man. He’s playing bail technique. That’s not man-to-man. He was scared. He was scared, man."
Here's to hoping the Cowboys and Redskins meet in the playoffs later this season so we can have this battle once more.
