Kellen Moore to start for Dallas Cowboys in regular season finale

Monday December 28th, 2015

Kellen Moore will start at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys in their regular season finale, coach Jason Garrett said Monday.

Moore has played the majority of the Cowboys’ last two games, the only appearances of his career. He has posted a 45.5 quarterback rating, completing 50% of his passes for 344 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions.

Moore is one of four quarterbacks to start for Dallas this season. Tony Romo began the season starting before breaking his collarbone in the team’s second game, then breaking it again during his second game back. Matt Cassel and Brandon Weeden have also started games for the Cowboys.

Cassel was benched due to ineffectiveness, while Weeden was released after Tony Romo returned from injured reserve and now plays for the Houston Texans. Weeden, Cassel and Moore have combined for a 1–10 record with Dallas this year. 

The Cowboys (4–11) finish their season against the NFC East champion Washington Redskins (8–7).
