WR Denarius Moore - Free Agent
|6-0, 194||Born: 12-8-1988||College: Tennessee||Drafted: Round 5, pick 148 (2011)|
2014 Week 1 vs NYJ (8 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)
Moore had a frustrating afternoon. The first two targets he saw were nowhere close to catchable and he dropped his third target. His only two grabs came in the fourth quarter and both times he failed to get past the only defender in the way of a big play.
2014 Week 2 vs HOU (5 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Moore had a quietly productive day with a couple of drops mixed in for good measure. He showed good quickness on a dig route in the 2nd quarter and danced for an 11 yard gain and a first down. In the third quarter he made two men miss on a quick screen and picked up 6. Moore also drew a pass interference in the end zone to set up the Raiders first touchdown and had one egregious drop and another that wasn't much better
2014 Week 3 vs NE (7 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)
Moore was heavily involved early in the game, but his drop late cost his team a chance to win. The game losing interception was a short pass that hit Moore right in the hands and popped into the hands of a Patriots defender. Moore also fell down on a back shoulder throw earlier in the game. Moore did have some positive plays as well, including ripping the ball away from a defender in traffic and keeping his route alive as Carr scrambled to pick up a first down.
2014 Week 6 vs SD (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Moore saw very little action in this one, and looks to be no better than 4th in the rotation. His only reception was a quick screen where he darted through 3 defenders for a 9 yard gain.
2014 Week 7 vs ARI (1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Moore had one reception on the game but continues to lag behind the other receivers in snaps and targets.
2014 Week 8 vs CLE (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Moore only saw one target and made a nice catch on a slant thrown behind him.
2014 Week 10 vs DEN (2 / 1 / 28 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Moore didn't see any targets until garbage time, but won a jump ball for 28 yards for the Raiders longest play of the game once the game was decided. Moore went up with the defensive back and secured the ball before falling to the ground. Moore's only other touch came on a WR sweep in the red zone and he picked up 1 yard.
2013 Week 1 vs IND (7 / 5 / 43 / 1 rec)
Ran a nice route on a short slant to pick up a first down on the opening drive. Moore also caught two more passes on the team's first drive of the 4th quarter, before dropping a 2 yard slant in the end zone. Two plays later Pryor went right back to him and Moore hauled in his first touchdown of the year. Moore was Pryor's favorite target when it came to designed pass plays.
2013 Week 2 vs JAX (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moore had a miserable day. He struggled to get open and dropped the ball when he was open. He dropped a first down pass that was a little behind him early in the game and then had a terrible drop on a short cross that was erased by penalty but still need to be noticed. He was wide open across the middle and dropped a perfectly placed ball from Pryor. Moore's concentration issues coupled with his lack of mastery of the route tree looks like a poor pairing for Pryor.
2013 Week 3 vs DEN (11 / 6 / 124 / 1 rec)
Moore had an outstanding evening, flashing the all athleticism and speed that has made scout's drool and none of the concentration lapses that makes his owners furious. His 73 yard touchdown was the big story, but it was his concentration on the smaller plays that was more surprising. On the touchdown pass he caught a deep post in front of two defenders then executed a spin move to lose them both. After that it was off to the races and Moore outran the entire Denver secondary. He caught two passes for short gains in the first half that were both a little high, and showed really good concentration on a back shoulder fade later in the game. Moore was Pryor's favorite target and on this day at least he looked like he deserved to be.
2013 Week 4 vs WAS (6 / 4 / 66 / 0 rec)
The numbers weren't totally there, but Denarius Moore had his second consecutive impressive outing in week four. His biggest gain came on a 34 yard pass between two defenders that Moore went to the ground to secure. Moore picked up some YAC later in the game when he caught a short hitch and then eluded his defender and picked up an additional 10 yards. For the second consecutive game Moore showed good concentration and hands and was clearly the WR1 for the Raiders. Moore was open on at least 2-3 other routes throughout the game where Flynn either didn't see him or didn't have the confidence to pull the trigger.
2013 Week 5 vs SD (8 / 5 / 84 / 1 rec)
Moore continued his maturation with another very solid game. He was well covered on a deep hitch and ripped the ball away from the defender on his first grab. On the very next play he settled under the zone to make a short grab and then broke two tackles on his way to a 17 yard gain. Moore finished that drive with a cagey play in the back of the end zone. With Pryor scrambling, Moore lost his man with a small shove in the corner of the end zone and then hauled in an easy two yard touchdown grab. Moore showed great awareness at the end of the half to come to the sideline to help his scrambling quarterback and snag a 19 yard reception. The pair started the second half off with fireworks as they connected on back-to-back deep balls down the right sideline. On the first Pryor slightly underthrew his receiver and Moore showed his much improved concentration, grabbing the 35 yard pass with a defender draped all over him. Two plays later Moore badly beat his defender for what would have been a 33 yard touchdown, but it was ruled that Moore had stepped out of bounds before he caught the ball. If hat touchdown stood it would have been a monster game for Moore, as it was his production was limited for the remainder of the game due to the game script.
2013 Week 6 vs KC (10 / 5 / 82 / 1 rec)
Moore's day was made by a 39 yard touchdown on a short slant in the second quarter. He badly beat the corner on the route and then outran the poorly positioned Chiefs safeties to the end zone. Moore made a tough grab in traffic in the first quarter and another good catch in the two minute drill on a hitch against Cooper. There were at least two passes that Pryor put in the vicinity that Moore could not come up with in the second half. Neither would be considered a drop but they were the types of plays that Pryor needed his star receiver to make.
2013 Week 8 vs PIT (4 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)
Moore's production was greatly impacted by the game script and the fact that he had Ike Taylor on him most of the day. Both of Moore's catches came on short slants that he extended after the catch because of passes that hit him right in stride. Both routes were crisp and on his second in particular, he simply outran the defender after the catch.
2013 Week 9 vs PHI (11 / 5 / 82 / 0 rec)
Outside of a ten yard slant on 3rd and 23, Moore had to work hard for everything he got. He did a good job coming back to Pryor on his 27 yard reception, catching the ball wide open and then using his quickness to turn it into a 27 yard gain. His 15 yard gain on a deep in was a strong route and a very good throw from Pryor. Later in the game he did a great job setting up the blockers on a wide receiver screen and picked up 12. Moore's day was nearly capped with a touchdown but he couldn't pull in a fade from Matt McGloin in garbage time. Unlike Jennings, much of Moore's success came early in the game and he didn't capitalize much on garbage time.
2013 Week 10 vs NYG (9 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec)
Moore saw his case of the drops return early in the game, but he finished much better than he started. His first drop was a really bad one on his part, on a short pass over the middle. The second came one play later and was more forgivable because it was at his shins. He made a great leaping catch for a seven yard gain on his next target. Moore's 23 yard gain came with Pryor scrambling and Moore did an outstanding job using his body as a shield to make the grab. He was targeted in the end zone but there was a miscommunication between he and Pryor on the play. Moore was limited by his own drops early and Pryor's lack of accuracy as well, but he was the clear number one target.
2013 Week 11 vs HOU (6 / 2 / 11 / 1 rec)
Moore made a good hands catch on this six yard touchdown to start the scoring. McGloin put the ball well out in front of Moore with some zip and Moore extended to make the catch. That unfortunately would not be a sign of things to come as he had two bad drops wide open later in the game. Oddly, he made another tough grab, coming back to a scrambling McGloin and snagging a bullet under duress along the sideline. Moore again flashed potential, but struggled with drops and took a back seat to Rod Streater.
2013 Week 15 vs KC (2 / 2 / 46 / 0 rec)
Moore was limited in his return and took a back seat to both Streater and Holmes. His biggest catch of the day came on a 34 yard bomb down the right sideline. Moore had beaten his man by two steps and made a relatively easy grab. The catch was his only one until he made an 11 yard grab on a garbage time pass from Pryor.
2013 Week 16 vs SD (3 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
Moore continues to get more involved, but he still didn't have a big play. His best catch was an 11 yard hitch on the left sideline that he caught in traffic. He never caught the ball in a position to do something after the catch and didn't see any deep targets.
2013 Week 17 vs DEN (7 / 4 / 63 / 0 rec)
Early in the game Moore was the only receiver with any kind of rhythm with Pryor. He ran an excellent route on a deep hitch on his first grab and showed good footwork on a back shoulder completion down the sideline in the final quarter. Moore's biggest gain came over the middle on a deep cross when he got wide open in between levels of the zone. As he often does, Moore also threw in one terrible drop in the open field.
2012 Week 2 vs MIA (8 / 3 / 67 / 0 rec)
Moore's return to the team was mildly successful, as he made 3 catches, and showed impressive speed and ability as he was able to run after the catch, make defenders miss and get the ball up the field. In the first quarter, Palmer also missed Moore high on one throw, and then Moore seemed to drop a ball later in the game, although the Miami defender was draped all over his back. Overall, for someone who missed all of training camp and is just getting acclimated into the offense, though, this was a pretty successful first game.
2012 Week 3 vs PIT (10 / 5 / 45 / 1 rec)
Moore's return to this offense was very impactful. Carson Palmer looked for him early, but he slipped on his route - resulting in an interception. Moore and Palmer were able to get back on track, though, as Moore ran a variety of routes and was targeted on multiple levels of the defense. His touchdown catch showed that he and Palmer were on the same page as Palmer extended the play by rolling left. Moore went along with him and made a nice diving catch as Palmer had to throw low away from the defense. His ability to make defenses pay attention to him at all levels allows the Oakland offense to be more balanced.
2012 Week 4 vs DEN (8 / 4 / 71 / 0 rec)
With Heyward-Bey sidelined with a concussion on Sunday, Moore was the Raiders only outside threat and was tied for the team lead in targets with eight. In a complete blowout of a game, Moore was one of the few bright spots. Moore was able to beat the corners relatively consistently, but often for naught as Palmer never had time to get him the ball. Moore's biggest play came on the 2nd quarter, as he ran right by Tracy Porter (clearly the one to attack in Denver's defensive backfield) and underneath a nicely placed Palmer pass. Moore tried to cut back, but safety Mike Adams was able to take his feet out from underneath him preventing what would have been a TD for Moore. Moore just missed a TD the drive prior, again getting behind the defense, but a rushed throw from Palmer proved to be inaccurate and just out of Moore's reach. Another positive from a downright awful game, Moore appears completely over his hamstring issue that has plagued him throughout the 2012 season.
2012 Week 6 vs ATL (9 / 5 / 104 / 1 rec)
Denarius Moore operated as the number one wide receiver today, totaling 5 catches, 102 yards and a touchdown. Moore's touchdown was an extremely nifty move, ducking under a tackling and scooting into the endzone before anyone else could get to him. Most wide receivers wouldn't have scored on that particular play. Early in the game, Moore also missed out on a 20 yard catch because he slipped on the grass, and that play could have gone for even more. Perhaps Moore's best play, however, was simply speeding past Asante Samuel on a go route for about 50 yards in the first quarter. He also dinged up his shoulder in the 3rd quarter, so given his missed opportunities, it's clear Moore has the potential to be a solid wide receiver in the NFL.
2012 Week 7 vs JAX (8 / 4 / 36 / 1 rec)
Although Carson Palmer misfired to him twice down the field early in the game, Moore still came up big in the red zone, finishing the day with 8 targets, catching 4 for 36 yards and a touchdown. His TD was a simple dumpoff underneath, but required enormous effort to stretch into the end zone. Although Moore wasn't able to do damage deep on Sunday, he can affect the game from anywhere on the field. Always capable of getting deep for a big play, especially when a play breaks down, Moore is fully over his early season injury and ready to breakout. As long as Palmer stays upright and somewhat mistake free, Moore could see some big numbers in the second half of the season, especially if McFadden gets going.
2012 Week 8 vs KC (8 / 5 / 96 / 1 rec)
Leading all Raiders in targets, receptions, and receiving yards, Moore had a huge day in helping the Raiders top the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Coming back to the ball on a first-quarter bubble screen, Moore took Carson Palmer's pass upfield for a fifty-eight yard gain, the longest reception of the day. Moore exhibited the patience of an elite running back as he ran to and away from defenders and allowed blockers to set up his path down the field. His nine-yard touchdown reception in the final minute of the first half was an incredibly athletic snatch. Leaping above coverage, Moore hauled in Palmer's toss to set up a seven point Raiders lead as time expired in the first half. The sophomore receiver could have stuffed the stat sheet even more, but he let an end zone pass from Carson Palmer slip through his hands. On a team whose offense runs through Darren McFadden, Moore brings the Raiders another dimension as a versatile threat in the passing game.
2012 Week 9 vs TB (9 / 4 / 66 / 0 rec)
Denarius Moore and Carson Palmer were rarely on the same page today and it really hurt their offense. Moore is obviously an important part of this offense, but they can't continue to play together like this. Moore's first target was a quick out. He was well covered by Eric Wright on the play and Carson Palmer didn't give him enough time to develop his route. Palmer came straight back to Moore, but a miscommunication meant that the ball landed more than 15 yards away from him. Either Moore ran the wrong route or Palmer made the wrong read. Palmer and Moore finally connected in the second quarter when Palmer hit him in stride on a deep route coming infield from the sideline. Moore ran an excellent route to come free. Palmer hit Moore perfectly on a slant route late in the third quarter, but he dropped the football despite being free of any immediate pressure. The Raiders went back to Moore on the same drive with a safe screen pass that he carried forward for seven yards. The lack of understanding between the two eventually caught up to Palmer however, as Leonard Johnson stepped infront of a pass intended for Moore to for his first interception of the day. At the start of the next drive, Palmer went straight back to Moore, but they couldn't connect on a deep comeback even though Moore had lost his defender. A quick curl route got him his next reception. Moore's final catch came on a deep crossing route when the middle of the field was wide open, it was most certainly too little too late as the damage had been done.
2012 Week 10 vs BAL (8 / 4 / 90 / 1 rec)
Moore had a good fantasy day despite being the target of Palmer's few inaccurate deliveries. Moore scored easily from the slot as Ed Reed was slow to shift over the coverage. He also juked a defender on a crossing route for additional yardage later in the game. Palmer missed Moore on two occasions, leaving plays on the field, in addition to a pass tipped at the line of scrimmage. Moore's lone mistake came in the second half on a high throw on third-and-long. It was a catchable ball with room to roam if the reception had been made. Moore's big-play ability was on display against Baltimore. He showed that even with few quality opportunities, he can carve out a solid performance any given week.
2012 Week 11 vs NO (7 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec, 1 / -5 / 0 rush)
Clearly Palmer's favorite WR, Moore led all the wide-outs with seven targets. However, rarely receiving a catchable ball, Moore was only able to catch one for nine yards. The first target clearly a miscommunication as Moore ran away from the intended pass, Palmer struggled to put anything thereafter on Moore until much later in the game. After missing him badly three times on shorter routes, Palmer appeared to have Moore on a 20-yard fade. However, pass interference on the defense prevented Moore from getting his other arm extended. Moore again got behind the coverage on a 4th down pass late in the game, but Palmer slightly overthrew him, just missing a 44-yard TD connection. Moore consistently beat the coverage, but only one of his six missed targets actually touched some part of the WR's body.
2012 Week 12 vs CIN (4 / 1 / 20 / 1 rec)
In a game where Moore saw a season-low four targets, his fantasy day was saved by a gorgeous touchdown catch in the second half. Prior to that play, Moore dropped a third down target right in his hands and Palmer missed Moore badly down the field. On Moore's touchdown, Palmer threw the ball up for grabs against pressure. Moore was able to run under the pass and separate from his coverage for a beautiful touchdown. It was the best passing play for the Raiders all game. Moore's final target came on a poorly thrown pass against pressure that nearly resulted in an interception. It was an underwhelming game for the dynamic downfield receiver. Considering the ineptitude of the Oakland passing game and the lack of garbage time production this week, Moore's touchdown was a saving grace that preventing a zero-point day that was a distinct possibility.
2012 Week 13 vs CLE (8 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
Moore and Carson Palmer were rarely in-sync against Cleveland this week. When Moore had single coverage early in the game, defensive backs made solid plays on the ball at the last second to break up the reception. On a later slant route where Moore gained early separation, the pass was clearly behind him. Moore was targeted again on a deep pass, but failed to make much of a play on the ball and it was nearly an interception. Moore's day concluded with a horrible drop on a deep in-cut that could have salvaged at least a decent fantasy performance. Moore's eight targets were the third-most this season, yet he managed just two receptions. Moore's production will continue to be very hit-or-miss as he is the team's main deep threat and clearly needs more chemistry with Palmer. The Broncos will be a tough test for the pair to rebound next week.
2012 Week 14 vs DEN (6 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
After being roughed up by a big hit from Rahim Moore early in the game, Moore returned on a crossing route uderneath for his first reception and a first down. Moore made an excellent hands catch under pressure over the middle before being pulled down by a linebacker. Moore's next reception came in the fourth quarter as he caught a deep comeback for a first down on second and 13. Palmer went straight back to Moore open in the flat as he carried the ball forward for 11 yards and another first down. For the third straight reception, Moore caught a comeback route for 11 yards and a first down. That play was negated for holding however.
2012 Week 15 vs KC (8 / 5 / 46 / 0 rec)
Denarius Moore, when Palmer went downfield, was the primary target. Moore almost reeled in a beautiful pass on a post pattern, but Javier Arenas was there to break it up at the last second. Moore was rather inconsistent in his route-running overall, and seemed to be well-covered throughout. He strengthened his performance in the second half, but almost had a fumble to his name, which Oakland fortunately recovered. It was a sloppy game by the former Vol.
2012 Week 16 vs CAR (7 / 3 / 12 / 0 rec)
Denarius Moore was just one victim of the Carson Palmer injury, as the Raiders' passing attack took a nosedive for the remainder of the game. Moore's involvement in the passing game was limited to safe quick screens, which were quickly snuffed out by Carolina.
2012 Week 17 vs SD (6 / 1 / 5 / 1 rec)
Moore was the unfortunate recipient of some errant passes by QB Terrelle Pryor. He was able to gain separation on a couple of occasions, including a few deep downfield where he had several steps on his defenders. But the passes from Pryor were either just overthrown or underthrown or behind the intended target, etc. The one time the two were able to fully get on the same page was on a late floater from Pryor in the end zone where Moore went up high to snatch it. Pryor was rolling out to his right, but kept his eyes on the end zone the whole time. He threw back across his body high to Moore, who leapt up and came down with the score.
2011 Week 2 vs BUF (8 / 5 / 146 / 1 rec, 1 / 25 / 0 rush)
This was a breakout game for the rookie WR who was the talk of training camp for the Raiders. With the team missing their top three receivers in the game due to injuries, Moore filled the gap and looked like he could be their #1 receiver anyway. Moore has good size and speed and he made one of the best plays of week when he split double coverage and hauled in a beautiful 50-yard touchdown pass from Jason Campbell. He had a couple other big plays in the game, including a 42-yarder down the right sideline when he outmuscled CB Leodis McKelvin for a jump ball. Moore nearly came up with another incredible play on the Hail Mary pass that ended the game. The Raiders are going to have a tough time taking him out of the starting lineup after this performance as he looks like a potential star in the making.
2011 Week 3 vs NYJ (6 / 4 / 34 / 0 rec, 1 / 23 / 1 rush)
Moore had an ok catching the ball, but really had a fantastic play on a double reverse for a touchdown. On the play, Moore found himself unable to go all the way outside and had the presence of mind to cut back inside, gets a tremendous block, shows fantastic speed and when he is hit short of the goal line, leaps and extends his body to score. Moore continues to show himself to be a tremendous weapon on offense and plays with some moves that would seem beyond his years.
2011 Week 4 vs NE (5 / 3 / 19 / 1 rec)
Moore had a somewhat disappointing day but saved his fantasy owners with a garbage time TD with a minute to go in the game. He still looked smooth out there but was not able to get open for a deep play this week. He is just a natural receiver that is very graceful and makes everything look easy. As a punt returner, you see his dangerous run-after-the-catch ability, and we should see much more from this promising rookie this season.
2011 Week 5 vs HOU (6 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moore was held without a reception despite being targeted often by Jason Campbell. Campbell looked for Moore on the Raiders' attempt at a two point conversion but he was unable to catch the ball. He was utilized primarily on drag routes and quick slants across the middle but the Houston linebackers did an excellent job clogging up the field between the hash-marks. Moore also returned punts against the Texans and had one fumbled punt return.
2011 Week 6 vs CLE (4 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec, 1 / -3 / 0 rush)
Moore had a disappointing day but it really wasn't his fault as the game plan just did not dictate to him and losing his starting quarterback did not help his cause either. He was able to get open for medium size play but was missed badly by QB Kyle Boller. He did look silly smooth on his lone reception where he took a wide receiver screen at the line of scrimmage made a defender miss and picked up 9 yards. This might not be his season because of the quarterback situation and the running offense but Moore is still very talented.
2011 Week 7 vs KC (5 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Speaking of Raiders' WRs that had rough days, Moore was definitely one of them. Moore shoved Flowers directly into Boller's first INT, fell down on Palmer's first INT, and deflected the ball in the a Chiefs DB's hands on Palmer's second INT. Moore had one catch for 4 yards and looked out of place for a majority of the game.
2011 Week 9 vs DEN (12 / 4 / 61 / 0 rec)
With DHB missing from the starting lineup, Moore stepped up and played a decent game. His catch rate was not good but it was not due to Moore playing badly. Instead, it had more to do with the Broncos playing good pass defense or wayward passed from Palmer. Most of his production came in the fourth quarter but once again he showed off his silky smooth game and made a few nice grabs in traffic.
2011 Week 10 vs SD (7 / 5 / 123 / 2 rec)
Moore had the best game of his rookie season in this game, taking advantage of the extra targets he saw when Jacoby Ford left the game with an injury. Moore got started early on, making the most phenomenal catch of the game on a night that was full of them. Carson Palmer's deep pass was seemingly just a little bit out of reach, but Moore made an awesome fingertip grab for a big gain, hauling it in just as the ball was about to drop. He snagged the nose of the football as it fell, and he stumbled a bit as he lunged for it. In fact, that slight stumble is probably the only reason it went for a 46-yard reception instead of a 59-yard touchdown. But Moore managed to find the end zone on long passes two more times anyway. The first was a very nice adjustment on which he had two defenders locked in on him on one side of the field, so he broke off his route and went across the formation the other way. Palmer found him in stride as both defenders futilely chased him sideways across the field. In the second half, Palmer again found him for the score this time on a deep fade in the corner of the end zone after beating his man off the line. Moore also added a diving comeback route near the sideline late in the game, proving he wasn't just a one trick pony.
2011 Week 11 vs MIN (2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Moore was the primary kick and punt returner for the Raiders in this game, but contributed very little on offense, much to the dismay of fantasy owners. In fact, Moore was only targeted twice in this game - both in the second quarter. Moore's only reception was a short crossing route that he turned into a nice 14 yard gain.
2011 Week 15 vs DET (5 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec, 1 / 13 / 0 rush)
Had a nice reverse call for a 1st down run up the left sideline early in the game. Same opening drive they dialed up his number on a 4th and short...Moore was wide open as the defender fell down in the end zone but Moore was overthrown or it would have been 6 points. He was wide open on a 15 yard wheel route for a 1st down in the 2nd quarter. Moore was not targeted much int he 2nd half of the game.
2011 Week 16 vs KC (9 / 4 / 94 / 1 rec)
Moore looked really solid for much of the day. He made a nice catch on a short out, going to the ground to make the catch. He also had a diving catch on an out where Palmer threw the ball wide of him and made a nice catch in traffic. However, the big play was the 61 yard TD strike he caught in the 3d quarter. Moore ran by the safety like he was standing still and had 3-4 steps on him when the ball was thrown. He slowed to catch the pass that wasn't thrown quite far enough and had an easy TD from there.
2011 Week 17 vs SD (6 / 3 / 101 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Moore had just three catches in the game, but two plays in particular displayed the outstanding athleticism that he possesses. After an early drop right in his hands showed his inconsistency, he soon had one of the best 4-yard runs you'll see all season long. He took a double reverse handoff up the right side and found absolutely nowhere to run. So he quickly turned back to the left side, running away from seemingly the San Diego team photo in the process. He had been fully contained by several defenders, but he was able to get away and pick up four yards after the play was over. He was seemingly injured at the end of the run, but he still had enough in him for the game's biggest play in the second half. Using essentially a straight-line route up the sideline, he beat his defender over the top. Moore made the catch at midfield and took it all the way down to the 11-yard line before being tackled down from behind for a 78-yard catch. Moore and fellow WR Darrius Heyward-Bey will look to combine to form a pretty potent 1-2 punch in 2012 for Oakland.
