Cowboys vs. Lions: 5 Matchups to Watch for Dallas
At Bleacher Report, I published some matchups to watch today. Here’s one:
WR Terrance Williams vs. CB Chris Houston
No wide receiver in the NFL has generated a higher passer rating for his quarterback than Williams. When throwing to Williams, Romo has completed an amazing 24 of 28 passes for 380 yards, three touchdowns and one pick.
You can see how Williams’ efficiency has increased throughout the year.
His top three games in terms of yards per target have been over the past three weeks. During that time, he’s averaged an unreal 19.2 yards per target.
Williams will likely be matched up primarily on Houston because, with Houston struggling, the Lions likely won’t want him on wide receiver Dez Bryant.
Houston ranks near the bottom in the NFL in yards allowed per route. If he’s on Williams, look for the rookie wide receiver to have a big day.
