Matthew "Matt" Davis and Daniel Moss are a team of Firefighters on The Amazing Race 22.

They were one of the three teams who got caught up on the sandcastle Roadblock in the first leg, and readily agreed to the plan to quit the Roadblock and take the four hour penalty, confident that they would be able to easily beat the other teams in the canoe race to the Pit Stop. However, they capsized twice, dropping them to last and eliminating them in 11th.
