The Chargers’ offensive coordinator Kellen Moor will use Monday night’s game against the Cowboys as a “revenge” game.
Moore served as the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator from 2019 to 2022. Both parties mutually agreed to separate following the 49ers’ loss in last year’s postseason.
In a media interview on Friday, Cowboys’ head coach Mike McCarthy answered the question of whether coaching against Moore would add a personal element to Monday’s match.
“No, not really,” McCarthy said. “There’s really no bells and whistles for this one. This is Game 6. My focus has always been, and it’s really the way I view schedules, I think a lot of NFL scheduling is it’s not as much who you play it’s when you play them. (Chargers are coming off their bye week) … He obviously has an excellent opportunity that he’s doing a very nice job with.”
Under Moore, the Chargers rank in the top five for yards per game (388.5). The Cowboys are ranked 16th in this department (327.4 yard per game).
On Monday night, Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will have his work cut out for him slowing Moore’s offensive system. This is especially true if Chargers QB Justin Herbert plays.
The Cowboys vs Chargers game will begin at 8:15 pm ET. ET.
