Dez Bryant continued to add to his impressive preseason statistics Saturday night at AT&T Stadium. The fourth-year wide receiver caught six passes for 54 yards and a touchdown in the first half of a 24-18 Dallas Cowboys victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. In the last three preseason games Bryant and the first-team offense have been on the field for 10 series. During that time Bryant has 13 receptions for 183 yards and one touchdown. If Bryant continues to post numbers like that numbers that show he's capable of building on his strong second-half performance from last season expectations will continue to grow. "That's fine" Bryant said. "I don't look at pressure. I go out and play my game. I always have a high standard for myself. … That's just how it goes. If I put up the numbers I put them up." Bryant's second-quarter touchdown came on a back-shoulder fade from Tony Romo. Cincinnati's Dre Kirkpatrick the 17th overall pick in the 2012 draft was defending but the 6-2 185-pounder didn't come close to winning the battle against the 6-2 222-pound Bryant.
