QB Matt Moore Wins AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week Award

Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore has been named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week, the team announced on Wednesday.

Moore completed 17-of-23 pass attempts for 244 yards and three touchdowns in the Dolphins’ 31-3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

“I’m happy for the win and I’m trying to keep it going for next week,” Moore said according to the team’s official website. “I’ve just got to have a bunch of those games, but it’s definitely exciting. I’ve been enjoying it and I’m moving on now.”

Moore took over the starting duties for an injured Chad Henne in Week 4. In five games, including four starts, Moore has completed 61.6 percent of his 138 pass attempts for 950 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions. Moore also has 12 rushing attempts for 32 yards and a touchdown.

The team notes that Moore is the club’s first “Offensive Player of the Week” since Ricky Williams earned the honor after Week 11 in 2009.
