Jerry Jones has made no secret that the Dallas Cowboys need to address their quarterback position behind Tony Romo.

They will have a few months to determine how they want to go about it after Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel and Kellen Moore combined to go 1-11 in Romo’s absence.

But the owner and general manager liked what he saw from Moore, so much so that he believes Moore could be a viable No. 2 quarterback.

“His background and (offensive coordinator Scott Linehan’s) background with him and these games, I think he’s got the potential to be a winning (backup),” Jones said. “I think he can ultimately win games in the NFL.”

Moore completed 33-of-48 passes for 435 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday’s 34-23 loss to the Washington Redskins. In three games of action, Moore had four touchdowns and six interceptions.

Scouting Report

Week 16 at Tennessee
With Brian Hoyer still going through the concussion protocol and T.J. Yates out for the season with a torn ACL, the Texans may turn to Brandon Weeden as their fourth starting QB of the season. Filling in for Yates last week in the win at Indy, Brandon went 11-for-18 for 105 yards with a TD toss to Jaelen Strong. He didn't have much success with the Cowboys earlier this season before being waived. If he's the starter, despite having a decent matchup versus the Titans, there is little reason for Weeden to be in your starting lineup.
