Kevin Byard was expecting his interception celebration Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys to be similar to that of Terrell Owens in more ways than one.
Byard said after the game that he was expecting to get drilled as George Teague did to Owens when he ran to the star logo at midfield for a second time during a Cowboys-San Francisco 49ers game in 2000.
“It was just something I thought about at the hotel, just thinking about Monday night in Dallas,” Byard said, via quotes distributed by the Cowboys. “Thinking what can I do if I make a play. And it was really just to show the team that we are not scared. We are here to play ball. We are here to win the game. I made the play and I ran straight to the 50 yard line. It was kind of off the wall a little bit.”
