QBR: Matt Moore is No. 1!

By James Walker

Who needs Andrew Luck?

According to the Total Quarterback Rating, the Miami Dolphins sure don't.

Dolphins starting quarterback Matt Moore played the most efficient game of his career in Sunday’s 31-3 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Moore was 17 of 23 for 244 yards and three touchdowns. He registered a stellar 97.7, which was the highest total in Week 9.

Moore was better than Aaron Rodgers (94.5), Tom Brady (56.3) and Ben Roethlisberger (80.2). Does that make Moore the long-term solution for the Dolphins? Probably not.

But Moore can do Miami and coach Tony Sparano a big favor by continuing to play well. Miami can win some games in the second half of the season if Moore consistently plays at this level.
