After a shaky start to yesterday’s preseason matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, the Dallas Cowboys turned things around in the second half. Several players made an impressive showing during the comeback run, including wide receiver Jamar Newsome and defensive tackle Zack Minter.
But the big revelation of the game was running back Ryan Williams, who tore off several big runs on Baltimore. He finished with 36 yards on just five carries and scored a touchdown.
His best play of the night came on this run:

I don’t know how Williams got his pad level lower than Baltimore’s safety there but that’s why he’s out on the field and I’m here writing about him.
The 24 year old Williams has only played in five NFL games in his career, which has been plagued by injuries, but from the looks of things he appears healthy now and will seriously challenge Julius Randle for the backup spot behind DeMarco Murray.
