Kellen Moore rebounded from last week's poor performance by completing 33-of-48 passes for a career-high 435 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions against the Redskins on Sunday.
Moore piled up yardage in his second career NFL start after looking completely inept against the Bills last week. The former Boise State star will have to cut down on his mistakes if he wants to find success at the NFL level, as his 4:6 touchdown-to-interception ratio through three appearances leaves much to be desired.
Kellen Moore completed just 13 of 31 passes for 186 yards and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Bills.
The 26-year-old found a rough go of it in his first NFL start, with Dez Bryant on the sidelines, although he managed to limit the interceptions after tossing three versus the Jets last week. Moore figures to remain the starter for the season finale versus the first-place Redskins, but he shouldn't be relied upon to produce in any fantasy format.
Kellen Moore has been named the Dallas Cowboys ' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Bills, NFL.com reports.
Moore replaced teammate Matt Cassel during the second quarter of Saturday's loss to the Jets, and went on to throw for 158 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. While those numbers are rather underwhelming, Saturday's loss finally eliminated the Cowboys from playoff contention, thus giving Dallas' coaching staff an opportunity to evaluate their roster over the final two regular season games. Compared to the 33-year-old Cassel, Moore is far more of a long-term prospect at quarterback, so the Cowboys will give him more chances to impress while leading their offense Sunday against the Bills.
Moore completed 15 of 25 passes for 158 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions. The loss officially eliminated Dallas from the postseason, so, with nothing to play for, head coach Jason Garrett may roll with Moore in the final two games of the season.
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said that Matt Cassel will remain the starter for now, the Dallas Morning News reports.
There's been a growing clamor to give Kellen Moore a chance as the season spirals down the drain, but with the Cowboys not yet officially eliminated from the postseason Garrett will stick with the veteran. Moore hasn't thrown a pass in the NFL in four seasons, but he could get a look under center once the team's focus shifts to 2016.
