Miami Dolphins Quarterback Matt Moore Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins dominated the Kansas City Chiefs last week, winning 31-3, earning their first "W" of the season. On their way to that win, several Dolphins players had their best statistical performances of the season.  

One of those players was quarterback Matt Moore, who had maybe the best performance of his career.  The NFL recognized that performance, naming Moore the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week.

Moore completed the game going 17-for-23 for 244 yards and three touchdowns.  His Week 9 passer rating of 147.5 topped the league, beating out the Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers by 1.7 points.  It was the second highest single game passer rating of the season, only being beaten by the Houston Texans' Matt Schaub's Week 7 147.7 passer rating performance.

ESPN's new Total QBR rating also placed Moore at the head of the NFL, giving him a 97.7 rating out of a possible 100.

The Dolphins play the Washington Redskins, led by former Dolphin quarterback John Beck, this week in Miami.
