Brian Moorman has had better days, and he hopes better days are ahead.
The Cowboys punter returns this week despite what he calls "obviously, arguably the worst game of my career." He had five punts for a 33.0 average against the Bengals, with punts of 27, 23, 27 and a 39-yarder that was tipped.
"That was obviously, arguably the worst game of my career," Moorman said Friday. "It’s just one of those things you’ve got to let go and know…. Obviously, I can kick them all down dead center and hope that they don’t return them. Or I can try and angle them out of bounds. Sometimes that stuff is going to happen. Sometimes you hit them in the trees off the tee box too. You just hope you don’t do it two times in a row, and that happened. So we’re in a new week. I had a great week of practice. Just go out there and carry it into the game."
Moorman had a 98-yard return against him on his last punt against Philadelphia, too, on Dec. 2. So it has not been a good two-game stretch.
