Sanchez-Fitz-Moore-Losman Watch

Now it's getting ridiculous.

The Miami Dolphins can't protect their quarterbacks. So, the race to determine the No. 2 quarterback in the AFC East continues to change names. First, it was the "Sanchez-Fitz-Henne Watch." That later changed to the "Sanchez-Fitz-Moore Watch."

Now, at least for this week, we debut the "Sanchez-Fitz-Moore-Losman Watch."

Moore suffered a blow to the head as the Dolphins gave up nine sacks in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. J.P. Losman replaced Moore and has a good chance to start Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, his former team.

Here is how we grade their Week 14 performances:

Mark Sanchez, New York Jets

Result: W, 37-10 against Kansas City

Stats: 13-of-21 for 181 yards, four total TDs

QBR: 80.8

Analysis: Sanchez did what was expected and then some in a blowout win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He made the right reads, didn't turn over the football and was great in the red zone. He threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more scores. This is the efficient Sanchez we saw in the playoffs last year. If he plays this well the rest of the year, the Jets have a chance to make the postseason and possibly do some damage after that.

Walker's grade: A-

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buffalo Bills

Result: L, 37-10 against San Diego

Stats: 13-of-34 for 176 yards, two INTs

QBR: 11.9

Analysis: Here is one criticism I have for Fitzpatrick: He's failed to carry his team in the midst of its worst funk of the season. Buffalo needs someone -- anyone -- to step up and get momentum back for the Bills. Fitzpatrick is now the face of the franchise after signing a $59 million contract extension. But he hasn't played great since, including another dud Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. Fitzpatrick will set new career highs in a lot of categories this year. But after a fast start, his entire body of work isn’t turning out to be all that impressive.

Walker's grade: D-

Matt Moore/J.P. Losman

Result: L, 26-10 against Philadelphia

Stats: (combined) 17-of-29 for 95 yards, one TD, one INT

QBR: 3.4 and 2.9

Analysis: Moore and Losman couldn't do much with a turnstile offensive line. Both quarterbacks were eventually injured, although Losman's isn't expected to be serious. Moore and Losman combined for 95 yards. The good news is Buffalo's defense hasn't stopped anyone in a long time. Losman should be motivated if he plays against the Bills team that drafted him. But both quarterbacks were bad on Sunday.

Walker's grade: F

This week’s winner: Mark Sanchez (three points)

Second place: Fitzpatrick (two points)

Third place: Moore-Losman (one point)

Overall standings (fourth quarter)

First place: Sanchez (three points)

Second place: Fitzpatrick (two points)

Third place: Moore-Lowman (one point)

The winner of the fourth quarter will be the second-best quarterback in the division behind Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. The "Sanchez-Fitz-Moore-Losman Watch" will continue after Week 15.
