Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett would not commit to naming Kellen Moore the team’s starting quarterback for the rest of the season Saturday.

Moore took over for Matt Cassel in the second quarter of the Cowboys’ 19–16 loss to the New York Jets on Saturday. Moore completed 15 of 25 passes for 158 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. 

“We'll go back, and we'll evaluate the tape, and we'll make the determinations and really throw out a roster as to who we want to play and how we want to play it,” Garrett said after the game. “Our focus is to win a ballgame, and the byproduct when you get to this time of the season with where we are, there's an opportunity to evaluate every player.”

The Cowboys have played four quarterbacks this season. With Tony Romo fracturing his collarbone, Brandon Weeden, Cassel and Moore have each spent time at the position.

Report: Peyton Manning not interested in backing up Osweiler

If Cassel starts the rest of the season for Dallas, he will earn an $800,000 bonus. Saturday’s loss eliminated the Cowboys from playoff contention.
