Broncos Safety Moore Takes The Blame For Late Game Failure

It was a play that will live in Broncos history forever. But not in a good way.

The play was a 70-yard touchdown in the final seconds of regulation that wound up tying Saturday’s AFC Divisional Playoff game between the Broncos and Ravens at 35.

As we all know by now, the Ravens won the game in double OT 38-35, and will play today’s winner of the Houston-New England game for the right to go to Super Bowl XLVII.

The goat of Saturday? There could be many, but the one player people seem to be pointing to the most is Broncos safety Rahim Moore. It was Moore who failed to knock the long pass to Jacoby Jones down, and it’s a highlight he will have to live with forever.

After the game – Moore stood up like a man and took the blame for the mistake.

“I’m taking the blame for it. Hey, I lost the game for us. It is what it is,” Moore said. “There’s never an ‘I’ in win. But there’s an ‘I’ in lose, because when you lose, you’ve got to look at yourself.”

Moore says that he would easily be able to make that play 99 of 100 times. Saturday, it was the play that set off a chain of events that sent the Broncos home.

  1. Moore’s play was huge but why wasn’t there more db’s back?. Coach Fox has to go. Way to conservative. 3rd n 4 for a first down to win the game and we run the ball?! What! Could get a yard half the time when we needed it,much less 4. Let Peyton throw;game over!. Fox is way to conservative to allow this offense to really succeed. The Jacksonville loss sparked back to back championship so let all “Tebow” this does the same.
