Garrett: Kellen Moore Will Make His First Career Start Sunday At Buffalo

IRVING, Texas – Kellen Moore will start at quarterback Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said on 105.3 The Fan.

Moore replaced Matt Cassel in the second quarter of Saturday's 19-16 loss to the Jets and completed 15 of 25 passes for 158 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

It was the first regular-season appearance of Moore's four-year career. Sunday will mark his first career start.

"We felt like he did some good things for us," Garrett said. "Unfortunately, the turnovers that he made weren't good, but hopefully he'll learn from those experiences and give us a good chance to move the ball and score points up there."

The Cowboys (4-10) are 1-6 in games Cassel has started for an injured Tony Romo this season. In seven starts (eight total appearances), Cassel completed 119 of 204 passes for 1,276 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Before getting replaced by Moore, Cassel was 3-of-8 for 37 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in four offensive series against the Jets. He was sacked for a 19-yard loss on his final drive.

It's the first time since 2001 the Cowboys have played four quarterbacks in one season.
