2. Terrance Williams redefines Terrance Williams
Well, how about Williams’ performance?
Nine catches. He was targeted nine times. 141 yards. He averaged 15.7 yards per catch. Say what you want about Williams, about his inconsistency or what not, but he showed up last Sunday.
He led the game with his nine catches, and tied Tyreek Hill with the longest play of the game — a 56-yard catch.
3. The Cowboys sit at the big boys table
Ok, I don’t like this, but we need to acknowledge the Eagle at the table. One year ago, the Cowboys flattered themselves by hogging the headlines.
This year, sadly, the Philly Eagles have stepped up and stole the headlines. At 8-1, and another dominating performance over the Broncos, they deserve it.
Yikes. I just said that. I’m sorry. But I can’t delete that. Cause it’s true.
4. The Cowboys saw this as a do or die game
I’ll buy into this.
Look, Elliott may or may not be out next week. The Cowboys needed a statement game. Not just for themselves, but to keep in the conversation with the Eagles. Gosh, I really hate writing about them.
At 5-3, the Cowboys are spitting distance with their rival, who lead with a 8-1 record. The Cowboys have control of the wheel with a win over the Chiefs, which makes the Cowboys and Eagles upcoming game that much more important.
