Terrell Owens, a Hall of Fame wide receiver, noticed that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan didn't have his finest first half of football against the Dallas Cowboys.

As a player, Owens was known for being frank and didn't hold back when he criticised Ryan's performance, labelling the QB "awful."

Even while Owens' remarks may be critical, they do have some substance.

Things went sideways for Ryan and the Colts, who entered halftime trailing the Cowboys 21-13 after starting the game 3-of-3 for 69 yards and 10 scores over two plays.

Ryan had trouble the rest of the way, finishing 3-of-11 attempts for for 24 yards. Before throwing an inopportune interception, he was twice sacked.

Ryan pushed a ball to receiver Alec Pierce with 1:03 remaining in the second quarter, but Anthony Brown's tip into the air caused it to be intercepted by safety Malik Hooker.

It's difficult to assess someone by two quarters of football, but fortunately for Ryan, he has a strong 15-year background to counter Owens' criticism.

The 37-year-2022 old's has been up and down; as of Sunday night. 

he has started for the Colts and had gone 4-5-1 with 11 touchdowns and ten interceptions.

Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot against the Dolphins and will miss the rest of the year. - ussportsweb
