Buffalo Bills will face Kellen Moore as the starter this week for the Cowboys; Matt Cassel benched

Dallas Cowboys promoted QB Kellen Moore off their practice squad

Cowboys will start Kellen Moore this week against the Bills

The Buffalo Bills will not get to face their former quarterback, because today the Dallas Cowboys benched him in favor of former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore. 

Coach Jason Garrett confirmed the move Monday morning, speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas after Moore completed 15 of 25 passes for 158 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions in the Cowboys’ 19-16 loss to the New York Jets.

“Just the evaluation of how he did in the ballgame and where we want to be right now offensively,” Garrett said of the decision to start Moore. “We felt like he did good things for us. Unfortunately, the turnovers he made weren’t good, but hopefully he’ll learn from the experiences and gives us a chance to move the ball and score some points up there.”

The Bills are trying to find themselves as well, so it will be interesting to see what the Cowboys can do with Moore in at QB.
