Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams caught three passes for 49 yards and a touchdown on game-high 10 targets in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints .
The inefficient performance was encouraging, as Williams drew a bunch of targets in the red zone, including his game-tying, 17-yard touchdown on a 4th-and-7 in the final two minutes. He had a few chances to make contested catches near the goal line, but the throws from Brandon Weeden weren't great, and Williams is obviously no Dez Bryant (foot). Though he's locked in as the clear No. 1 wideout until Bryant returns, Williams has to deal with a conservative offense and poor quarterback play. On the bright side, the few shots Dallas takes do seem to be in his direction. The Cowboys host the New England Patriots in Week 5.
Williams, who caught four passes for 84 yards and a score in Philadelphia, was blanked Sunday on two targets. It was the first time he was shut out since Dec. 4.
He will try to bounce back at New Orleans next Sunday night.
Williams was relatively quiet until he caught a 42-yard touchdown from backup QB Brandon Weeden late in the fourth quarter. Weeden was playing because Tony Romo fractured his clavicle in the third quarter, and will miss the next 4-to-12 weeks. It's obviously a big hit to Williams, after he got a bump in value when Dez Bryant broke his ankle in Week 1.
In any event, Williams will face the Falcons at home next week.
Williams was treated by team trainers and went to the locker room holding his left arm after suffering the injury. Williams was diagnosed with a bruised elbow. An X-ray on the elbow came back negative.
On 2nd and 7, quarterback Tony Romo connected with Williams who cut twice before finding the end zone for a touchdown.
It was Williams second consecutive game with at least one touchdown. He finishes the postseason with four receptions, three of which went for scores.
Williams finishes his season with 751 yards and 11 touchdowns in 18 games for Dallas.
