The nightmare of the 2015 Cowboys season is over, and it’s time for one final edition of players of the week. Which Dallas offensive and defensive players left a good final impression to the coaching staff in the team’s latest home loss to the Redskins?
I’m glad you asked, here is my final edition of Dallas Cowboys players of the week!
Offensive Player of the Week: Terrance Williams WR
It was a fitting ending to a completely disappointing season for Terrance Williams, as he caught eight passes from Kellen Moore for a career-high 173 yards in a game that had no meaning.
Looking ahead to 2016, many fans will be calling for Brice Butler to replace Williams as the Cowboys second receiver. Williams may have made that decision a little bit harder for the Cowboys, ending his season on a very high note.
Defensive Player of the Week: Rolando McClain LB
Entering the final five games of the Cowboys season, I worried about pending free agent Rolando McClain’s energy that he would bring to this team on a weekly basis. He silenced some critics, by consistently putting up good games with the team out of contention.
In what was possibly his last game as a Dallas Cowboy, McClain made plays all over the field on his way to a team-high 12 tackles. Hopefully the team values McClain’s playmaking ability and new-found consistency and bring him back for 2016.
