The Cowboys offense was held without a touchdown in a Week 16 loss to the Bills.
In Week 17 the Cowboys will play against the Washington Redskins to close out the regular season. The Redskins have already wrapped up the NFC East and may opt to rest some starters in lieu of risking injury in what could be considered a meaningless game.
Kellen Moore makes his second start of the season for the Cowboys in this one and has humble goals.
“Score a few more points,” Moore said via the Star Telegram. “Obviously that’s kind of the whole objective. Hopefully we can do a little better.”
Moore produced a 48.6 passer rating while tossing an interception in last weekends loss for the Cowboys who enter this one at 4-11.
Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan threw some support behind Moore.
“I do. You know, I’m obviously the guy waving his flag more so than anybody,” Linehan said. “But I just really felt comfortable the way he played in the game. I know he had the interception, we had a couple misses, but he didn’t look like a guy who was starting his first game to me.
“We didn’t score enough, but I think he sparked our ability to get some big plays and move the team. Handled it very much like a veteran in my mind.”
