Moore’s Week 15 campaign didn’t exactly start off well, coming in for fellow cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon, who suffered a knee injury in the first quarter. Three plays later, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson went right after the newly inserted Moore, connecting with wide receiver Doug Baldwin for a 5-yard touchdown.
Normally, that would be a drop in stock. Yet Moore showcased some short memory, bouncing back nicely and finishing the game with seven tackles and two passes broken up.
On one of those, Moore nearly picked off the ball with the Seahawks attempting to take the lead with 18 seconds remaining. While he was unable to haul in the would-be turnover, Moore’s body positioning was such Seattle wide receiver David Moore, had he caught the ball, wouldn’t have been able to get out of bounds to stop the clock.
That’s good situational awareness from Tarvarius Moore coming at a big point in the game.
