Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens explained that his sideline display of emotion on Sunday wasn’t the result of any concerns regarding his lack of involvement in the game plan.
Instead, Owens said on Tuesday’s Michael Irvin Show that he was upset because of a death in the family.
“Everything that happened on Sunday, I had talked [about with] my pastor Anthony Gardner out of Philadelphia the night before the game,” Owens said. “When I got emotional, it was an anointed emotion, is what he explained to me.
“When it happened, I knew it was going to happen. He told me the night before it was going to happen, so when I went to the sideline, the emotions hit me.”
So, per Owens, he wasn’t upset about the fact that only three balls were thrown in his direction on Sunday.
“There are people in the booth that say I look troubled,” Owens said. “Don’t judge me based on what you think I said or what you think I meant. I am not perfect by any means. I make mistakes. But I know who I am at heart. I play with a passion on the football field. I have a lot of faith in my ability.”
