With the season on the line QB Kyle Orton targeted WR Miles Austin. The pass was intercepted and effectively ended the season. Orton says the blame falls squarely on his shoulders.
“I just threw a bad pass,” Orton said. “Miles ran a great route. It was the same play we scored on the play before, went to Miles this time. I just threw it behind him and the guy made a nice catch of the ball.”-ProFootballTalk.com
Orton is right he threw a bad pass but in all reality the season shouldn’t have come down to that. The defense was dreadful and the Cowboys simply weren’t a playoff team.
