Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 18 vs PIT (29 / 36 / 289 / 1 / 1 pass, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

Just looking at the number, Matt Moore looked to have a great day by all standards. He completed 29 of 36 passes for 289 yards with one touchdown and one interception. What the stats do not show is how the Steelers defense managed to rattle him early in the game, which led to two turnovers and allowed Pittsburgh to gain the early lead and never let up. Moore was able to move the ball in the second half as the Steelers secondary relaxed and allowed the short passing game to eat away at the clock, which is exactly what happened. The game is not on Moore's shoulders though, as he was able to move the ball and give the Dolphins several shots at touchdowns in the red zone. He completed a long pass to Devante Parker for 37 yards that showcased his arm and ability to throw the deep ball, but otherwise Moore simply took what the Pittsburgh defense gave him.

2016 Week 17 vs NE (24 / 34 / 205 / 2 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Matt Moore has stepped in for the injured Ryan Tannehill and kept the Dolphins season alive by piloting them to an AFC wild card berth. The Dolphins had a lot of momentum heading into their showdown with the Patriots on Sunday, but saw much of that momentum slip away in a 35-14 loss. Matt Moore completed 24 of 34 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. Moore was effective in finding his receivers in the short and intermediate passing game, but was unable to create big plays down the field. On the Dolphins second drive of the game, Moore targeted Dion Sims deep down the left sideline and was intercepted by Logan Ryan. From there, Moore settled for working the middle of the field with Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker. Moore was able to hook up with Landry for an eight yard touchdown in the second quarter, while also finding Kenny Stills for a 25 yard touchdown in the third quarter.

2016 Week 16 vs BUF (16 / 30 / 233 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Matt Moore's job of stepping in for the injured Ryan Tannehill, while simultaneously keeping the Dolphins playoff hopes alive, was not an easy one, but he has responded with three fantastic performances. On Saturday against the Bills was no different, as Moore completed 16 of 30 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns and one interceptions. Moore has not had to have the playbook trimmed down for him, and did a marvelous job of putting the Dolphins skill position players in the best position to succeed and only turning the ball over once. While it may appear as though Moore has been nothing more than a game manager due to a lack of gaudy stats, that is the furthest thing from the truth. The Dolphins run a ball control offense that depends on quick strikes, and Moore has done a great job of finding his receivers with great timing and accuracy, allowing them to create yards after the catch. This was especially true on his touchdown pass to Devante Parker. On third and six from the Miami 44 yard line, Moore dropped back and hit Parker perfectly in stride coming across the middle of the field from the left hash mark. Parker deserves all the credit from there, as he turned the play into a 56 yard touchdown, but it is plays like that show Moore's poise in the pocket. Moore also connected with Kenny Stills for a six yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.

2016 Week 15 vs NYJ (12 / 18 / 236 / 4 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Matt Moore is a consummate professional, and it speaks volumes that he has been with the Dolphins for six seasons despite being the backup to Ryan Tannehill. Miami knew they could count on him to be ready to play on Thursday, and Moore did not disappoint. He completed 12 of 18 passes for 236 yards and four touchdowns with no interception. The playbook was not chopped down for Moore, and it showed. On third and nine from the Dolphins 48 yard line, Moore took the snap out of shotgun formation before falling into a three step drop. With the Jets getting pressure from the outside, Moore threw a perfect deep ball to Kenny Stills, toward the center of the field and out in front of him. It gave Stills the necessary time to run underneath the ball and complete the reception for a 52 yard touchdown. Moore was sharp the entire game, making quick, decisive reads that let his teammates make plays on his behalf. A great example of this came on first and ten from the Dolphins own 34 yard line. Moore took the snap under center and took a short three step drop before hitting Jarvis Landry on a shallow slant route five yards downfield. The rest was vintage Landry, as he broke an arm tackle by his defender and then raced up the right sideline untouched for a 66 yard touchdown. While Moore did not have to do much, he executed the play with perfect timing and put Landry in position to do what he does best.
