Dez Bryant says he left the field with time remaining in Dallas' crushing loss to the Packers because he "couldn't watch Green Bay kneel that ball down" and that he cried when he got to the locker room.

The Dallas receiver who had a well-publicized sideline rant in another deflating defeat at Detroit this season told reporters during a hospital visit Monday that he doesn't think about media attention in such moments.

The Cowboys blew a 26-3 halftime lead and lost, 37-36, Sunday after Tony Romo threw an interception with a chance to run out most of the clock following a first-down throw to Bryant with a 36-31 lead.

Shanahan not quitting

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says he has no plans to resign.

Shanahan said it's "accurate" that he doesn't plan to quit after what will be his third losing season in four years.

Shanahan reiterated, however, that his fate won't be determined until he and owner Dan Snyder talk about the direction each wants the team to take.

Bumbling Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals lost their grip on the ball. Then they lost their grip on the game.

Their coronation as the new power in the AFC North is going to have to wait at least one more week.

Antonio Brown caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt for a score in a 64-second span in the first quarter and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Bengals, 30-20, Sunday night in Pittsburgh.
