Cowboys rookie Terrance Williams had a nice debut on Sunday night with two catches on four targets for 32 yards, but when he had a “rookie moment,” it led to a Tony Romo interception in the red zone that was almost turned into a pick-six.
As the story goes, Romo changed the play at the line, but the Baylor product didn’t see or hear the call. So when Romo targeted Williams, he wasn’t there. Giants safety Ryan Mundy was.
“The clock was going down and I’m looking at the defense and he apparently checked to something else,” Williams said, per the Dallas Morning News, “and I wasn’t looking.”
Romo was visibly angry with Williams at first, but then he settled down and appeared to offer some encouragement to the rookie on the sidelines.
“I just got to keep building trust with him and just keep doing what I’m supposed to do and be at the right spots, at the right times,” Williams said. “The more I do that, the more chances that he’ll throw the ball to me.”
