MINNEAPOLIS -- The frustrations of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams surfaced following the team's 34-3 loss playoff to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Williams finished the game without a catch and was targeted only once.

When asked if the Cowboys called any plays for him, he told, "No. Hell no."

Williams has endured a subpar season in which he caught just 38 passes for 596 yards and seven touchdowns. He had four games with one catch and two in which he was shut out.

Once the postseason began, Williams was hoping he would be more involved in the offense.

In the NFC wild card win against the Philadelphia Eagles, he had five catches for 59 yards and no touchdowns. Williams dismissed the production, saying the Eagles' frequent blitzes were the reason he was targeted.

Against the Vikings, Tony Romo's only throw to Williams came on a first-down play in the first quarter. Romo was under pressure and got knocked down on the play.

"I didn't get a ball today, and I didn't get a look at today. It just happens," Williams said. "It's frustrating. It pisses me off, especially when we lose and especially when I feel like I have a mismatch. I got a 5-10 corner [covering me, Dontonio Wingfield], but hey, you know, I will continue to work hard in the offseason and it will come back around."
