We continue the "Sanchez-Fitz-Moore Watch," as all three quarterbacks were in action this past weekend.
After watching all three play in person on Sunday and Monday, here are the latest grades from the AFC East blog:
Result: L, 27-24 against Giants
Stats: 21 of 30, 244 yards, two TDs, two INTs
Analysis: Fitzpatrick is playing decent football but not to the same level that he played the previous three weeks. His grade would be better if not for two costly mistakes against the New York Giants that led to Buffalo losing its second game in three weeks. I think the loss of speedy receiver Donald Jones has really hurt Buffalo's passing game. The Bills rarely go deep anymore, and teams are catching on to it. Fitzpatrick and the Bills’ offense need to adjust during the bye week.
Walker's grade: C+
Result: W, 24-6 against Dolphins
Stats: 14 of 25, 201 yards, two TDs (one passing, one rushing)
Analysis: Sanchez got off to a slow start but eventually warmed up in the second half. Sanchez misfired on several opportunities and failed to lead the Jets to a first down until the second quarter. The second half Sanchez seemed more comfortable and set his feet on a few good throws. He's still not playing consistent enough to be great teams. But Sanchez did get the victory.
Walker's grade: C+
Result: L, 24-6 against Jets
Stats: 16 of 34, 204 yards, two interceptions
Analysis: Moore had two weeks to prepare for the Jets but still looked shaky. His accuracy was off overall and he couldn’t make a play on third down or in the red zone. I’m still confused that Moore chose to attack Jets Pro Bowl corner Darrelle Revis so much. That wasn’t wise. Revis picked Moore off twice, including a 100-yard touchdown return that change the momentum of the game. Moore needs to play better to get the Dolphins in the win column.
Walker's grade: D+
This week’s winner: Fitzpatrick and Sanchez (three points)
Third place: Moore (three points)
Overall standings (second quarter)
First place: Fitzpatrick and Sanchez (six points)
Third place: Moore (one point)
