Eagles Vs Dolphins: Matt Moore, Reggie Bush Form Surprisingly Productive Tandem

Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore has been oft-criticized throughout his career. Running back Reggie Bush has been questioned as a feature back. Together, they lead a Miami Dolphins offense averaging 27.8 points in its past five games.

The Dolphins are 4-1 in that span.

Miami (4-8) hosts the Philadelphia Eagles (4-8) on Sunday, and Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo said Moore and Bush could pose problems.

"He's doing a good job, he's managing the offense," Castillo said of Moore. "You know, what happens is, there's times when the coverage is real tight, and what he does is he ends up somehow finding a spot to get through and get five or six yards. It may be third-and-five and he gets six [yards], or third-and-eight and he'll get nine. In the red zone, he does a good job of keeping the chains moving with his scrambling."

Bush spent the first five years of his career with the New Orleans Saints, but has blossomed in Miami while shouldering a bigger load. With four games left to play, he has already run for a career-best 667 yards, including 100 last week in a win against the Oakland Raiders.

"The way he's being used, he's being productive. Great football player," said Castillo.
