Matt Moore, Dolphins fall to 4-7 with 35-17 loss in New England.
Starting in place of Jay Cutler (concussion), Moore was 23/34 for 215 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. He also rushed twice for nine yards. The Patriots jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, and Miami played catch up the rest of the way. If he's cleared, Cutler should be back under center in Week 13 against Denver. Moore wouldn't be a fantasy option if he got another start.
Matt Moore brings Dolphins back, but Tampa Bay wins with late field goal.
Replacing a concussed Jay Cutler, Moore was 17/28 for 282 yards and one touchdown. The score was a beautiful 61-yard throw to Kenny Stills on a corner route to tie things up at 20 in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, Tampa Bay responded with a game-winning field goal and scored on the final play of the game to win 30-20. If Cutler isn't cleared for Week 12, Moore won't be a recommended streamer against New England.
Dolphins offense struggles in shutout loss to the Ravens.
With Jay Cutler out with cracked ribs, Matt Moore was under center but could not get anything going, as the Ravens defense played lights out and pitched the largest shutout (40-0) since 2014. Moore was 25/44 for 176 yards and two interceptions in the game. Late in the game, the Ravens had two pick-sixes off Moore—one on an athletic play by linebacker C.J. Mosley, who caught a short pass at the line of scrimmage and took it all the way; and the other on an easy read by cornerback Jimmy Smith on a bad decision by Moore. Cutler is expected to be ready to go in Week 9, but Moore would not be a fantasy option even if he has to make another start.
Matt Moore leads Dolphins to comeback win in relief of injured Jay Cutler.
Moore was 13/21 for 188 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He found Kenny Stills for both scores in the fourth quarter, as he brought Miami back from a 28-14 deficit to tie it up, and a Jets turnover allowed them to kick a game-winning field goal and improve to 4-2. The Dolphins play again on Thursday night, so Moore is almost certainly going to be under center against Baltimore. He is one of the best backups in the NFL, but Moore isn't a fantasy option in a difficult matchup.
Adam Gase: "Right now, Matt Moore is our quarterback."
After Dolphins practice today, Gase was asked about the situation with Tannehill and said "right now, Matt Moore is our quarterback. We'll see where we go from there because I've got to figure what's going on with Ryan (Tannehill)." The "right now" obviously leaves them open to making a move for another quarterback. It'll probably come down to whether Tannehill gets season-ending surgery or if he tries to rehab and return in several weeks. If they do opt for surgery for Tannehill, current FOX broadcaster Jay Cutler might be the way to go, given his history with Gase when he was his offensive coordinator in 2015 with the Bears.
Matt Moore, Dolphins lose to the Steelers in the Wild Card Round.
Moore was 29/36 for 289 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, with two lost fumbles. Both his fumbles were on sacks and his interception was on a nice play by Ryan Shazier, who dropped back in coverage and Moore didn't see him. Moore was beat up (sacked five times) and took a huge hit by Bud Dupree, but returned to the game after one play. Moore made some nice throws in the game, but the Dolphins didn't have much of a chance with their run game struggling and the Steelers jumping ahead early in the game. Moore should return as the Dolphins' backup next season.
Matt Moore was 24/34 for 205 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in Sunday's 35-14 loss to the Patriots.
Miami was playing to potentially move up to the #5 seed, but it didn't matter as the Chiefs won anyway. The Dolphins will head to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, and it is unclear if Ryan Tannehill will be able to play. We'd guess Moore will be starting.
Matt Moore contributes to win over Buffalo.
Moore went 16/30 for 233 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Moore continues to look solid filling in for Tannenhill as Miami’s new starting QB. Heavily leaning on the rushing attack as expected with Ajayi rushing for 208 yards, the Dolphins didn’t need to use Moore’s arm much. Moore threw his two touchdowns in the 3rd quarter, one to Devante Parker who turned a short pass in tight coverage into a 56-yard touchdown, and one to Kenny Stills who continues to be the Dolphins red zone threat.
Matt Moore throws for four touchdowns to help get Dolphins to 9-5.
Moore was 12/18 for 236 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception against the Jets. He played amazingly well for someone that hasn't made a start in five years. Moore had no problem taking deep shots throughout the game, and his lone interception came on an under thrown deep ball to DeVante Parker where he didn't set his feet; it likely would have been a long touchdown if he stepped into the throw. Moore was accurate throughout the game on his 18 attempts, including a perfect throw while rolling to his right for a short touchdown to tight end Dion Sims, then a good deep ball to Kenny Stills for a 52-yard touchdown. The Dolphins are going to try to keep things going behind Moore next week on Christmas Eve against the Bills. Moore won't be as good of a fantasy option in that game.
Matt Moore enters game for injured Ryan Tannehill and helps get Dolphins to 8-5.
Moore was 3/5 for 47 yards including a strike to Kenny Stills to set up the Dolphins for a game-winning field goal. With Tannehill likely out at least next week, Moore isn't a terrible option against the Jets secondary. He's a QB2.
