    Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams came very close to ending his first ever drive in the NFL with a long touchdown catch. Instead, quarterback Tony Romo overshot him by a good five yards.

    Afterward, we learned that both quarterback and receiver were to blame for the miscue.

    “It’s an adjustment route,” Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. “He’s got to see a little bit differently on the thing, and then obviously if he runs that route, I’ve got to adjust to that. It’s part of learning. It’s his first game. We’ll have that down next time. I thought he did good tonight, though. He did a lot of good things.”

    Head coach Jason Garrett, meanwhile, put the blame for the failure to connect on Romo--not that he’s mad or anything.

    “Tony missed a throw,” Garrett said. We sees he’s an obviously very accurate quarterback. It looked like Terrance beat him off the line of scrimmage and we missed it. That’s an opportunity that we look back on as coaches and it’s a missed opportunity.”
