IRVING, Texas — Dez Bryant may finally be ready to stop being a riddle.

The Cowboys receiver has been great one game and hard to find the next. He created a scene at a mall one year, then trouble with the law the next.

But now he has multiple 100-yard receiving games for the first time, including a career-best 145 yards in last weekend’s 23-20 overtime win against Cleveland.

The question heading into a Thanksgiving showdown with Washington is whether Bryant has finally arrived in his third NFL season.

Even the eternal Cowboys optimist – owner Jerry Jones – isn’t ready to give a definitive answer. He’s reluctant to say Bryant is “doing good,” but will say he’s “doing better.”
