    Terrance Williams said he needed to do a better job of preventing the interception of Tony Romo in the fourth quarter.

    “I ran past him to try to see if he would turn and move his hips, but he didn’t. He just stayed there,” Williams said of cornerback A.J. Jefferson, who grabbed the sideline pass with 4:29 left in the game and the Vikings ahead 23-20. “I tried to cut him off, but I’ve just got to do a better job of being more physical, or just at least trying to deflect the ball so a pick like that wouldn’t happen.”

    Coach Jason Garrett agreed.

    “Certainly, the coverage was tight, and the guy made a good play, good break on the football,” he said. “When it is one-on-one, you have to cut the ball loose. You have to count on the receiver winning and the receiver making the play for you, and certainly, not a lot of bad things happening.”

    The Cowboys got the ball back and drove for the game-winning touchdown, getting Williams, and Romo, off the hook.

    It’s the second time Williams has taken the blame for an interception. In the season opener against the New York Giants, he ran a route incorrectly.

    The first interception was definitely Williams's fault, but this one is 100% on Romo. Though it's a good thing he took blame for the interception even though it wasn't his fault, his teammates will take notice and this will go a long way with them.

    I love how you know better than both an NFL receiver AND a former NFL QB/Current OC.

    Both men with insider knowledge spoke to the point. You with no insider info just puked to the point. Romo might have made an ill-advised throw. Then again he might have expected his big, rangy receiver to come back to the ball and not allow himself to be undercut and defeated by a smaller man.

    T-Will is a class act. He took ownership of an interception that certainly wasn't all (maybe half?) his fault. As Romo has said recently...the kid is growing into something special hard and fast.

    In retrospect I doubt Tony is happy about that throw. But I doubt anyone w/knowledge is happy with how Terrance conducted himself in this play. But let's keep it real: No one died. No need for executions. Live and learn. Team game.

    Romo could've thrown it more to the sideline for sure, but Williams could've definitely fought more for the ball. I say both guys share blame on the play. Regardless they showed poise when they were given another chance and capitalized on it!

    And I love how you're so clueless. First interception that happened between them was without a doubt on Williams. On the second interception it looked like Romo was just trying to force it into an unnecessary tight window, and it got picked. No reason to make risky throws during a time like that, and when he got the ball back soon after he redeemed himself.

    hoe many times on Sunday did guys make the same throw and the receiver came up with it--Romo made the right read and throw, but the defender adjusted better than the receiver

    No matter whose fault it was, when you throw the ball as much as we do without the threat of a run, interception are going to happen

    not never...just rarely. which is pretty factual. most qb's int's are someone else's fault. only the horrible ones like ponder's int yesterday on a very underthrown ball are the qb's fault.

    I'll go with equal blame here. It wasn't the best decision by Tony and it wasn't a good effort in the least by Williams.

    I thought that was a pretty sweet play by the DB. At some point you have to give their guys at least some credit.

    It's remarkable how few there have been under these circumstances. And of the 6 so far, it's not even remotely debatable that QB was the key culprit on at least 3-4 of them.
    21 TDs and 6 ints is really good.

    As for TWill, he's further along than I thought he'd be at this stage, so I have hard time dogging him too much. We knew his hands were average at best, but even then I think the kid has a bright future due to his overall ability and potential.

    Williams big knock at Baylor (from what I hear from Baylor fans) was his inability or lack of using his hands to catch. I dont think that ball woulda been a INT if thown to Witten or Bryant. I hope Williams improves this part of his game.

    Give this kid an entire off season to learn what he doesn't know and he will really be something next year.

    Williams got beat to the inside. That shouldn't happen to a receiver. And I give the defender credit he took Williams spot and made the play.
