Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 6 vs TB (10 / 7 / 73 / 0 rec, 1 / 13 / 0 rush)

D.J. Moore produced a virtuoso performance as he came up with clutch catches at pivotal moments. His day started off on a sour note, as he failed to make the adjustment on a back-shoulder pass and subsequently dropped a simple pass on third down, looking downfield for run-after-catch possibilities instead of securing the ball. Those mistakes seemed to inspire him, however, and he responded by snagging a crucial third down pass on a quick slant, clamping the ball. A comeback route later in the half saw Moore in acres of space as the cornerback was bamboozled by his route-running and deep speed. Moore continued to operate as a steady outlet for Kyle Allen in the short to intermediate range of the field. It was a deeper catch in the second half, however, that was truly special. Running a deep dig on third down, Allen's pass was right on the money, but Moore's strong hands made the play. With a defender close by in coverage, Moore held on to the ball like a vice grip as he fell to the turf.

2019 Week 5 vs JAX (8 / 6 / 91 / 0 rec)

Without lighting the game on fire, D.J. Moore proved his typically dependable presence for young quarterback Kyle Allen. Moore shows excellent technique with his hands in traffic, snagging difficult passes and making the process look straightforward. An early target on a screen pass couldn't connect, as pressure forced a low ball from Allen. Moore came into his own after that, though one pass on a slant pattern clanged off one of his hands when it appeared as if he could have attacked the ball with both. Moore operated mostly in the short to intermediate range of the field, but his most impressive play was also his deepest target. Allen spotted Moore isolated on a defensive back deep down the left sideline and unleashed a rainbow pass. Moore, recognising the cornerback had gotten on top of him, beautifully dove into the air and snagged the football over the defender's head. It was a play of supreme athleticism and a crucial catch on third down.

2019 Week 4 vs HOU (5 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)

D.J. Moore was largely kept quiet in this game, although the Carolina passing attack didn't have to get too expansive with the lead intact. Moore did not put a foot wrong all game, hauling in all his catchable passes. He and Kyle Allen failed to connect on a corner route deep down the right sideline late in the game, with the pass floating too high. Moore connected well with Allen off play action, where the quick-twitch receiver was able to gain inside leverage on his coverage player for an easy pitch and catch.

2019 Week 3 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 52 / 1 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)

D.J. Moore caught just one pass against Arizona, but it encapsulated the type of player he is beautifully: a speed demon who is a menace after the catch. On the play, Curtis Samuel cleared out the deep defenders with a go route, allowing Moore to sneak in underneath on a deep crossing pattern. The pass from Kyle Allen was pinpoint accurate, giving Moore the ball in stride. He wasted no time, scooting up the field for a 52-yard touchdown. Moore contributed as a runner on one play, a jet sweep variation that caught Arizona off guard.

2019 Week 2 vs TB (14 / 9 / 89 / 0 rec)

D.J. Moore became a focal point of the offense along with the ever-reliable Greg Olsen with the young receiver's success coming mostly on in-breaking routes. Moore took advantage of the Buccaneers' man coverage consistently, getting inside leverage on slant routes off play action. Cam Newton peppered Moore with these passes, and the receiver showed excellent concentration and toughness on some where a defender met him with a tackle almost straight away. Moore and Newton showed excellent timing and understanding on a back shoulder pattern on the left sideline in the second half, the receiver spinning his body to catch the ball at the last moment. Moore was not used as a downfield threat, though a couple of targets his way were wayward due to Newton's inaccuracy and the Tampa Bay pass rush.

2019 Week 1 vs LAR (10 / 7 / 76 / 0 rec)

D.J. Moore suffered some rookie year redux against the Rams, coughing up a fumble early in the game after a routine catch in the right flat. Moore put a stutter-step move on the defenders who were closing in, but as he tried to shoot the gap between them the ball was popped loose with a punch. Moore was involved in another turnover as the first half progressed. Lined up in the backfield, he motioned into the left flat and Cam Newton tossed him the ball on a screen pass. The ball, however, was thrown backwards and Moore was unable to handle it. The Rams pounced for a crucial sudden change turnover. Moore came alive when the offense went to no huddle, using his quickness and route-running nous to bamboozle defensive backs. He made a particularly nice snag in traffic on a deep dig in the two-minute drill, hanging on despite contact. Two deep targets from Newton were too far out in front of Moore for the receiver to haul in, though he was open on both occasions.
