Before last Sunday, the last time second-year receiver Terrance Williams caught a touchdown pass was October 19 against the Giants--also the date of the Cowboys’ last win at home--and many were wondering why he had disappeared from the offense.
Both of those droughts ended in grand fashion on Sunday. Williams reappeared and caught two touchdown passes, and the Cowboys routed the Colts 42-7 on the way to their first division title since 2009.
"Anytime a player is productive or as productive Terrance was [Sunday] it's a good thing for them, whether or not he needs it," said head coach Jason Garrett, per ESPN Dallas. "I don't know that he needs it. One of the things he does is when he gets opportunities he cashes in on it. I think [Sunday] was a great example of that. He got the third down early to score the touchdown. Then he gets the chance late to run by the guy on the nine route.
“So he's always ready. He always plays the right way. When he gets his chances he typically comes through.”
Williams was just one of four receivers to catch a touchdown pass from Tony Romo on Sunday, the others being Cole Beasley, Dez Bryant and Jason Witten.
"That goes to show you how many playmakers we have," Beasley said. "We had so many guys score touchdowns, just glad I could do it."
