Matt Moore has spent nine years in the NFL, and he makes his first postseason start Sunday at Pittsburgh. Moore went 2-1 in his three starts after Ryan Tannehill’s knee injury, but the two wins were against the Jets and Bills.
Regardless of the quarterback, the Dolphins offense will run around Jay Ajayi. The former fifth-round pick exploded for over 1,200 yards this season, including rushing for over 200 yards when these teams met in the regular season.
On the opposite sideline, it’s Le”Veon Bell looking to move the chains for the Steelers. Injuries have kept Bell in sweatpants for the past two postseasons, but he’s playing the best football of his career heading into Sunday. Bell was named the AFC Player of the Month for December, after averaging 187 total yards per game during his team’s four-game win streak to end the regular season.
