  • Dolphins' Matt Moore: Set to start Sunday's game
    By RotoWire Staff

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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 tackles on a 56-yard catch-and-run touchdown by DeVante Parker, as well as 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.

  • 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 (ACL/MCL) 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.

  • Moore (shoulder) completed 3 of 5 passes for 47 yards in Sunday's 26-23 win over the Cardinals. Moore, who'd come into the Sunday morning with a questionable designation, found himself in the middle of a tightly-contested game after starter Ryan Tannehill exited with a knee injury early in the fourth quarter. The veteran was effective when called upon to throw the ball, and the biggest of his three completions was vintage, risk-taking Moore. He took a shot on a first-down pass from the Cardinals' 30-yard line with 43 seconds remaining but still managed to unload downfield to Kenny Stills, who hauled in the throw just a yard short of the goal line. That completion eventually enabled Andrew Franks to attempt and make the game-winning field goal as time expired. With the news that Tannehill likely suffered a torn ACL and would therefore be done for the season, Moore could well find himself as the Dolphins' starting QB as down the stretch.
