Cowboys rookie receiver Terrance Williams was putting together a pretty nice afternoon on Sunday, before it all went out the window in one fell swoop. After making a catch in the red zone in the fourth quarter, Williams had the ball stripped from his grasp at the Chargers’ one-yard line.
Williams finished with a team-leading seven catches and 71 yards.
“Just feel like I was trying to make a play and it just didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to,” Williams said, per the Dallas Morning News. “But I still felt like I let a whole bunch of people down. It will be kind of tough to get past it. But I have to just move on.”
It was a crushing mistake, granted, but Williams’ teammates made clear that they’re still confident in the rookie.
“Everybody has bad plays,” said fellow receiver Dez Bryant. “They don’t determine who you are. Don’t let a bad play dictate what you can do. I feel like--don’t feel it, I know--he’s a great player.”
