Week 2 vs. WAS
Receiving: 1 / 7 / 0 on 1 targets
Moore was rarely in the game. He caught his only target for seven yards on a simple out route. Robert Meachem received more playing time then Moore.
Week 3 vs. DEN
Receiving: 7 / 78 / 0 on 7 targets
He seemed to be on the same page with Brees as he caught all seven balls thrown his way, tops for WRs.
Week 4 vs. SF
Receiving: 7 / 101 / 2 on 10 targets
Lance Moore stepped in for the injured Marques Colston and was frequently targeted while the Saints were establishing themselves on offense. He saw eight of his ten targets in the first half as he was open mainly on crossing routes. His career day was capped off by two touchdown receptions in the first half, the second of which was on an excellent throw that he caught between two defenders in the end zone.
Week 5 vs. MIN
Receiving: 5 / 31 / 0 on 9 targets
Moore was all over the place, but he could not catch the ball down the field. He also was responsible for one of Brees' interceptions due to bobbling the ball up into the air. He was targeted twice in the end zone but could not get either catch, neither of those being his fault. One involved a should have been pass interference and the other involved good coverage.
Week 6 vs. OAK
Receiving: 7 / 97 / 0 on 8 targets
Moore has proven to be more than just a replacement, and caught seven passes for 97 yards. Brees is not afraid to go to him even in tight coverage. He has very good hands and knows how to get open. It will be interesting to see how New Orleans uses Moore when Colston returns.
Week 7 vs. CAR
Receiving: 3 / 10 / 0 on 6 targets
Moore was targeted in possession situations and his longest gain was only four yards. On the positive side, it's good to know that even with Colston returning to the lineup Moore still has a place in this offense.
Week 8 vs. SD
Receiving: 6 / 90 / 1 on 10 targets
Despite a quiet second half (two targets), Moore was the big receiving threat for the Saints in this game. He was wrapped up right on the doorstep to the end zone on a second quarter reception, stopping him just short. Deuce McAllister scored on the next play. But Moore was able to get on the scoreboard later that very same quarter when he beat two San Diego defenders to haul in a diving touchdown catch in the back of the end zone. Despite the lack of action after halftime, Moore was still the most heavily-targeted wide receiver, with only TE Billy Miller seeing more passes head his way (6) in the second half.
Week 10 vs. ATL
Receiving: 6 / 76 / 1 on 13 targets
Lance Moore did not start but was a key contributor to the passing attack. He made several key receptions and appeared to be on the same wavelength with Brees. Four of his six receptions resulted in either a first down or a touchdown. His touchdown reception was more due to luck than any type of pass catching skill as he was in the right place to catch a Hail Mary pass that was tipped up in the air by the group of players to his right.
Week 11 vs. KC
Receiving: 8 / 102 / 1 on 9 targets
Moore, New Orleans' leading receiver led the team in targets, receptions and receiving yardage. Moore made a nice grab on his fifth touchdown reception of the year. He now has a touchdown reception in each of his last three games.
Week 12 vs. GB
Passing: 0 - 1, 0 yards, 0 TD, 1 INT
Receiving: 5 / 115 / 2 on 7 targets
WR Lance Moore was the Saints' most reliable and explosive receiver in week 12. Moore made an outstanding effort on both touchdown scores in order to get into the end zone. On the first score, he wheeled around DB Atari Bigby and sprinted toward the end zone after making the catch. On the second touchdown, QB Drew Brees hit him over the middle and Moore extended his body completely to break the plane with the ball as he fell to the ground.
On another play, Moore showed great awareness and realized he had not been touched down by the defender and scampered for a few extra yards.
Moore also threw an interception on an attempted double pass play. He was hit hard as he let the ball go and it floated in the air into the defenders' arms.
Week 13 vs. TB
Receiving: 2 / 15 / 1 on 6 targets
Moore was targeted six times and came down with two receptions for 15 yards, including a 13 yard touchdown reception.
Week 14 vs. ATL
Receiving: 3 / 35 / 0 on 6 targets
Despite not starting it appears that Moore may be one of Drew Brees' favorite receivers. They were unable to connect on the majority of their intended plays, but it did not stop Brees from looking to him for a big play. Brees attempted to connect with him three times during the first half, but was unable to due to Moore either running the wrong route or the ball being thrown to high.
Week 15 vs. CHI
Receiving: 5 / 27 / 0 on 8 targets
Moore only had two catches for 12 yards in the first half. He added four more passes for 15 yards in the second half. All his completions came on very short routes underneath the coverage. He was not much of factor in this game.
Week 16 vs. DET
Receiving: 4 / 36 / 0 on 5 targets
New Orleans' leading receiver had a quiet game. He caught four passes for 36 yards with a long gain of 17. Moore muffed a punt, but the Saints recovered.
Week 17 vs. CAR
Receiving: 8 / 91 / 2 on 10 targets
Moore closed out an excellent season as the leading receiver for the Saints by catching eight passes for 91 yards and two touchdowns. With the defense concentrating on stopping Colston, Moore was able to find open areas in the zone defense on crossing routes and in seems down the deep middle of the field. He catches the ball well in traffic and, when catching the pass, is able to put some good moves on the defenders to gain extra yards.
