Dez Bryant is watching tonight's Monday Night Football game. Apparently, he's hoping his former coach Jason Garrett is as well.

During the Baltimore Ravens' second drive of the game, they faced a 4th-and-1 at the Rams' 23-yard line. Rather than kick a field goal and take a 10-0 lead, John Harbaugh elected to go for it.

Lamar Jackson picked up the first down on a five-yard keeper. On the next play, he threw an 18-yard touchdown pass.

As that was happening, Dez called out Garrett on Twitter.

If you're unsure what Dez is talking about, he's referring to Garrett's decision to kick a field goal midway through the fourth quarter yesterday against the New England Patriots. Down 13-6, Garrett took the three points instead of going for it on fourth down.

By the time his offense got the ball back, Dak Prescott couldn't do anything with a desperation drive, and Dallas lost the game 13-9. Garrett was roundly criticized for the decision.

The Ravens are one of the NFL's most progressive teams in terms of attempting fourth down conversions. Harbaugh's usage of analytics has helped maximize the array of offensive weapons he has at his disposal.

Perhaps Garrett should try and do the same in Dallas.
