Kellen Moore had a forgettable game, going 8-of-17 for 69 yards with no touchdowns and a 58.2 passer rating.
The Cowboys went three-and-out their first three series with Moore completing just 2-of-6 passes for two yards. The offense didn’t get a first down until the second quarter on what became a field goal drive.
“We weren’t efficient enough, but we did manage to do some good things,” Moore said. “We still have a lot to work on.”
Moore, who missed all of last season after breaking his ankle in training camp, had a better showing in the Hall of Fame game. In that game, Moore went 12-of-17 passing for 182 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He had a 100.6 passer rating in that game.
Moore has also been solid during practices early on in camp.
“It’s been good and things continue to get better every day and get more comfortable with everything,” Moore said.
Moore is still the odds-on favorite to win the backup job as coach Jason Garrett and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan like his knowledge of the offense.
Cooper Rush started at quarterback in the second half for the Cowboys.
