in 1984, he returned to the U.S. to play for the NFL’s Houston Oilers. Moon set a new club record with 3,338 yards passing in his first year with the Houston, a mark he would break four more times. In 1990, Moon led the NFL with 4,689 passing yards. He also led the league in attempts (584), completions (362), and touchdowns (33), and tied Dan Marino’s record with nine 300-yard games in a season. In 1991, he again led the league in passing yards 4,690.
