A big reason for the Dolphins' midseason turnaround has been the quarterback play from Matt Moore, who replaced Chad Henne as the team's starter when Henne went on injured reserve. The former Panther has had a very impressive stretch over the last four games, completing 70-of-104 passes (67.3 percent) for seven touchdowns and one interception. The team is 3-1 during that span. Moore has struggled with accuracy throughout his career, but in eight games he has a 63.0 percent completion percentage, which is a career high.

It's not just Moore's play on the field that has helped the team. The way we hear it, the Dolphins have rallied around Moore, who has proven to be a better leader than Henne. Offensive players have been very receptive to Moore's aggressiveness and confidence with his throws, which was seen on his touchdown throw to Brandon Marshall in the Dolphins' Thanksgiving loss to the Cowboys. Miami is still expected to take a quarterback with its first pick in April's draft, but Moore's play makes the QB position look less tenuous heading into 2012.
