The Dallas Cowboys’ QB put up impressive numbers in a game that was never even close — but they still count.
Kellen Moore threw for 435 yards and three touchdowns (also throwing two picks and losing a fumble) in a 34-23 loss to Washington on Sunday, marking the end of a dismal season for the Cowboys and his last chance to make an impression on collectors before Tony Romo returns from injury next season. He ends the year with just four TDs and six picks since he only played in two other games this season — all losses.
Will a game like this breath some long-term life into his 2012 Rookie Cards? Probably not, but it’s a reminder that a good game can bring the spotlight to anyone in any week in the NFL — so he gets the nod here.
Keep reading for four more guys who generated some buzz on the field this week. (Note: selections made before late games were completed on Sunday … and watch for our yearly version of this list later this week.)
