There Might Be A Playmaker Left 

We all know the issues Terrance Williams has had, but the catch he made on the touchdown was a thing of beauty. Had Weeden not overthrown him a few times, Williams may have had a really good game. This might be the confidence-building catch he needs to get himself going like he did in training camp. Right now, Williams and  Beasley are the biggest threats on this team. If the running game can get going both of those guys could emerge in the coming weeks as a savior.

The major issue here is that without a run game, as much as I like Beasley and Williams as complimentary players, they can’t be expected to be your top two playmakers. If the Cowboys are going to win a few games either the defense will have to save them, or the next man up belief will have to be better than just another guy. We all know what Jason Witten can do, but he isn’t a threat to take a short-range catch and turn it into a touchdown. The inability by Weeden to adjust well to defenses means players will have to step up.
