It’s been an up and down season for the Broncos starting free safety. His three interceptions lead the Denver defense and are already a career high.

Consistency has been a major issue in 2014 with Moore. It’s been an issue throughout his whole career, for that matter.

There’s no question Moore can be better and he has a chance to build off of the strong game he had against the San Diego Chargers. He did a solid job in locking up the always crafty Antonio Gates. Moore even went airborne for an interception that effectively ended San Diego’s comeback attempt towards the end of the fourth quarter.

Like Talib, Moore’s attitude, size and raw playmaking ability are what set him apart, and they’re exactly what give him a puncher’s chance at containing Rob Gronkowski.
