Dez Bryant livid with overturned Hunter Henry TD in Pats-Vikings originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
If anyone knows the frustration of an overturned touchdown grab, it's Dez Bryant. So when the former NFL wideout witnessed the controversial call involving Hunter Henry during Thursday's Patriots-Vikings game, he couldn't help but voice his opinion.
During the third quarter, Henry caught what looked like his second touchdown of the night to give the Patriots a seven-point lead. The tight end's hands appeared to be under the ball as it made contact with the ground, but the officials overturned the call and negated the Pats TD.

Former Patriots running back James White and ex-Patriots safety Jason McCourty agreed with Bryant's assessment.
A visibly upset Henry said he believes he caught the ball, but the refs made a call that he and the Patriots have to live with.
That overturned call proved costly as the Vikings tied the game at 26 on their next possession. Minnesota ended up winning the back-and-forth matchup, 33-26.
