Ten games into his career and with the rematch with New York coming Sunday, that has all changed.
“I'm more comfortable in what I’m doing and I'm playing at a faster speed than I was before,” Williams said.
A miscommunication on a route with Williams led to Tony Romo's only interception in the opener. Williams had two catches for 32 yards against the Giants, but he developed quickly and has 29 catches for 498 yards and five touchdowns.
The last three games, however, have told a different story. Using that batting average as a true indicator of play is tricky, but Williams has only five catches in his last 22 targets from Romo for 118 yards and two touchdowns.
“I don’t really pay attention to that, but I feel like if the ball’s thrown my way I have to come down with it and these last few games it’s just small stuff I’m doing,” Williams said.
The bye week was a help to Williams.
“I finally got a chance to rest and just watch some old tape about how I did for the earlier games,” Williams said. “I saw my mistakes from before and now I can just become better for the second half of the season.”
