AFC Recognition for Moore

Matt Moore's strong performance at Kansas City last Sunday did not go unrecognized as he was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

In the Dolphins' 31-3 victory, Moore passed for 224 yards three touchdowns and compiled a career-high 147.5 passer rating. It was the highest passer rating for a Dolphins starter since Jay Fiedler topped that figure in a 2004 victory over the St. Louis Rams.

The 147.5 rating also was the third-highest in team history (minimum 20 attempts). Moore's three touchdown passes at Kansas City was the third time in his career that he has thrown for three touchdowns in a single game.

Moore became the first Dolphins quarterback since Chad Pennington in 2008 — also at Kansas City — to have three touchdown passes in a game.

The last time a Dolphins player had won AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors was in 2009 when Ricky Williams was recognized for his work in a Week 11 victory at Carolina. As far as quarterback, the last Dolphins player to win the AFC weekly award was Chad Pennington in 2008.
