(11:30) 3rd & 4: Williams lines up slot right. Runs a deep curl. Freeman throws incomplete to Parker. (Williams was essentially covered, with a defender lurking very close who would have made a play on any balls thrown at him)

(2:08) 2nd & 13: Williams lines up wide left. Blocks a CB. (Run play)

(1:41) 3rd & 11: Williams lines up wide left. Runs a go route. Freeman completes to Benn behind the LOS. (Cannot tell if Williams was open or covered)

===========================================================

2nd Quarter

(13:39) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide right. Runs an in route. Freeman completes to Benn. (Williams was open)

(13:00) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Runs downfield. Attempts to block a CB but the CB gets away, then gets in the way of another defender, slowing him down a little. (Run play - the 54 yard touchdown)

===========================================================

(10:55) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Blocks a CB. Commentators point out that it looks like it was meant to be a run, but Freeman wanted to turn it into a smoke route to Parker. Parker did not realise, and Freeman was left with no-one to throw to, resulting in a sack.

(10:26) 2nd & 13: Williams lines up wide left. Turns infield for the smoke route. (Run play)

(9:43) 3rd & 8: Williams lines up wide right. Runs a slant route. Freeman completes to Parker for the first down. Penalty flags. Holding by Lumpkin. Roughing the passer by Green Bay. Penalties offset. Repeat third down. (Williams was open at the beginning of the route, had Freeman thrown to him quickly, but as Freeman didn't, Williams ran into coverage)

(9:16) 3rd & 8: Williams lines up wide right. Runs a post route. Freeman completes to Winslow for the first down. (Williams was open but then slipped at the top of his route)

(8:31) 1st & 10: Williams lines up left, tight outside the slot. Runs a slant route. (Benn'd Around)

(8:05) 2nd & 1: Williams lines up wide right. Runs a slant route, blocking a CB on the way. (Run play)

(7:28) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Runs a go route. Freeman completes to Lorig. (Cannot tell if Williams was open or covered)

(6:45) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Blocks a CB. (Run play)

(6:03) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Runs down the right sideline. Freeman throws a jump ball to him, Williams comes down with it for a first down.

(5:21) 1st & Goal, from the 10: Williams lines up wide left. Motions infield until he's behind the tight end (lined up left). Runs up to a DB, gives a week block. (Run play)

(4:41) 2nd & Goal, from the 13: Williams lines up wide right. Runs an in route. Freeman throws to him, but there are two defenders diving for it, and Williams cuts his route up short to avoid the contact. (For what it's worth, I remember this being a big deal at the time. Well, this is the only time I've seen Williams ever purposely avoid contact like that since doing this detailed film study. We'll see if it happens again in the remaining six games, but this is the first time I've seen it. He still should have laid out for it, though)

(4:37) 3rd & Goal, from the 13: Williams lines up wide right. Runs downfield, stopping before a CB to block him. Freeman throws a screen pass to Lumpkin, but it is short.

===========================================================

(1:52) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide right. Runs a slant route. Freeman throws to him. The ball pops out after he goes down, the refs call him down by contact prior to the ball coming lose.

(1:18) 2nd & 3: Williams lines up wide right. Runs an out route. Freeman completes to Winslow for the first down. (Williams was open)

(0:52) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide right. Runs an in route. Freeman completes to Winslow. (Williams was covered)

Bucs time out


(0:45) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide right. Runs a curl route. Freeman throws to him but it's way too high.

(0:41) 2nd & 10: Williams lines up wide right. Runs a post route. Freeman throws to Williams but it is picked off. Despite what the commentators about Williams not running the route at full speed, if he was running any faster the ball would have been behind him (though of course the argument could be made that Freeman would have thrown the ball further in front of him if Williams was running faster, meaning the CB wouldn't have gotten to it). Still, the ball was not behind Williams, but rather was a case of the CB jumping in front of him. That's not to absolve Williams - there is never any excuse for running your routes at anything less than full speed, something that Williams does not do with frustrating frequency (even though it's almost always on run plays). Still, the interception was more on Freeman, in that, if he saw Williams not running full speed, he should have chosen to throw elsewhere. Poor decision making by Freeman, but laziness on Williams' part definitely a factor. And yes, it is poor decision making on Free's part - you might say, "oh but he assume Williams was running full speed". If that's true, then Free's ball would have been well behind Williams, implying that he either thought Williams was running at full speed, or knew Williams wasn't, and chose to throw to him anyway.

=========================================================

3rd Quarter

(12:09) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Runs a curl route, despite really struggling to get off the press. Freeman completes to him.

(10:54) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Runs a slant route, blocks a safety but the safety gets off the block rather easily. (Run play)

(10:13) 2nd & 11: Williams lines up wide left. Runs downfield. Freeman scrambles. (Cannot tell if Williams was open or covered)

(9:29) 3rd & 6: Williams lines up wide left. Motions infield until he's inside the slot receiver. Slants to midfield, the cuts outfield. Freeman completes to Winslow. (Williams was open)

(8:43) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Bucs all time out prior to the play clock winding down to :00.

(6:33) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Turns infield for the smoke route. Despite having three defenders around him immediately, makes some yards after the catch. Could have been further if Williams had bounced outside and kept going to the outside. Instead, seeing defenders in front of him, bounced back inside. This could be again an example of avoiding contact, something I haven't observed him doing in previous games.
