Cowboys right tackle Terrence Steele tore his ACL during Sunday’s game against Houston. Jason Peters stepped in at right tackle during the game-winning drive against the 1-11-1 Texans:

No word yet if Peters will hold Jerry Jones hostage like he did Howie Roseman when he had to fill in for Andre Dillard. Don’t get me wrong, he was making right guard money and deserved to be paid as a left tackle. It just sucks he only played eight games that season, which mixed with the consistent false starts to stall drives, really muddied his legacy in Philly at the end.

Here’s what Cowboys fans and reporters think of Peters stepping in:

It’s a blessing for now.

Peters hasn’t played more than 21 snaps during a game this season. If he does become the starting RT, those numbers will triple. That’s gotta be worth at least three drive-killing false starts on Christmas Eve.
