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 15 vs New York Jets

Matt Cassel was awful Sunday against the Packers. He only completed 45 percent of his passes for 114 yards and zero touchdowns. He added a pick for good measure. Not a banner day for the veteran QB.

Cassel will still be the starter this Saturday against New York. The Jets are 17th in aFPA to quarterbacks, but it really shouldn't matter. Cassel has not performed well with the Cowboys. He should remain on your bench as one of the lowest rated quarterbacks for Week 15.
