Terrell Owens said the Cowboys will be better with Kyle Orton

Tony Romo’s former wide out Terrell Owens made sure to give the Cowboys fans something to look forward to this weekend.

“I think if you’re looking at this situation — two back surgeries in two years — I don’t think we should expect any Peyton Manning magic from him,” Owens said Friday on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access.” “I think obviously he’s had his ups and downs as it is. You wish the best for him, but I think we’ve seen the best of him.”

Owens believes the Cowboys have a better shot to win the NFC East on Sunday night with Kyle Orton under center against the Philadelphia Eagles.

“I do,” T.O. said. “I think it honestly because, again, if you look at this situation, if it shakes out and if it’s a shootout — late in the game — everybody’s expecting Tony to throw (an) interception. … Again, not to take anything away from what he’s done this year. He’s played spectacular, but going into situations like this, I mean, everybody expects the obvious, and that’s for him to make a mistake. A huge mistake.”
