Dolphins' Matt Moore: Productive but mistake-prone in wild-card loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Moore completed 29 of 36 passes for 289 yards with a touchdown and interception in Sunday's 30-12 wild-card loss to the Steelers. He also gained two yards on one rush and lost two fumbles.

The final numbers look more than adequate from a fantasy perspective, but three untimely mistakes ultimately defined Moore's afternoon and sealed the Dolphins' fate. Moore lost the handle on a late second-quarter sack by James Harrison deep in Steelers territory, and then repeated the dubious feat on the opening possession of the third quarter when he was separated from the ball by Mike Mitchell at the Steelers' 42. The veteran signal-caller then failed to see Ryan Shazier on a pass over the middle for Jarvis Landry on the next possession, leading to an interception and return by the former to Dolphins' 25-yard line. Moore otherwise hung tough on a day when he was brought down five times overall and hit on many other occasions, including one instance when he had to leave the game for one play after a hard hit by Bud Dupree. Although he ultimately couldn't get his team past the opening postseason game, Moore once again validated his reputation as one of the NFL's most capable backups with his performance over the last three weeks of the regular season and Sunday's contest.

Dolphins' Matt Moore: Set to start Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore is slated to start Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers, the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Per the report, Ryan Tannehill is not even in line to suit up as a backup, as he works his way back from a knee injury. In four games this season, including three starts, Moore logged a 105.6 passer rating, while recording an 8:3 TD:INT ratio in that span. He'll take aim Sunday at a Pittsburgh defense that ranked 16th in the league in the passing yards allowed department, with an average mark of 242.6 per game.

Dolphins' Matt Moore: Throws pair of TDs in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Moore completed 24 of 34 passes for 205 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 35-14 loss to the Patriots. He also fumbled once but recovered.

Moore was efficient enough in the regular-season finale, despite the fact that his team's defense was steamrolled by a Patriots team vying for the No. 1 seed in the AFC. He displayed particular rapport with Jarvis Landry, connecting with the PPR monster on nine of the team-high 12 targets he directed his way. While Moore has certainly proven capable of leading the Miami offense in his three starts during Ryan Tannehill's (knee) absence, the stakes will be considerably higher and the conditions much tougher if he finds himself under center in next weekend's wild-card showdown versus the Steelers. Tannehill's status remains up in the air, and certainly will be monitored closely as the practice week unfolds.

Dolphins' Matt Moore: Efficient in pivotal Week 16 win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Moore completed 16 of 30 passes for 233 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 34-31 overtime win over the Bills. He also lost a yard on his only rush.

The veteran backup demonstrated once again why a capable second quarterback is such a valuable commodity, doing a solid job of managing the game and giving the Dolphins a chance to hang on for the pivotal victory. Moore was fortunate in multiple respects Saturday, as he was able to lean heavily on Jay Ajayi, who blistered the Bills for the second time this season to the tune of 206 yards on the ground. He also benefited from some highly incompetent tackling on the part of the Buffalo defense, which missed multiple opportunities to bring down DeVante Parker on his 56-yard catch-and-run touchdown, and which repeated the dubious feat on a 44-yard reception by tailback Damien Williams. With no definitive timetable for Ryan Tannehill's (knee) return, Moore will presumably be behind center once again in the New Year's Day season finale against the Patriots.

Dolphins' Matt Moore: Throws four touchdowns against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Moore completed 12 of 18 passes for 236 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 34-13 win over the Jets.

Moore got the start with Ryan Tannehill (knee) sidelined, and performed admirably. His first touchdown pass to Dion Sims was originally ruled incomplete, but there was no doubt about his 52-yard bomb to Kenny Stills later in the first half. Things got even better for Moore in the second half, as the veteran backup exploited the vulnerable Jets secondary for a pair of third-quarter scores before taking it easy in the fourth. He likely won't match this success next week in Buffalo.
