New York, N.Y. - Former Mizzou Football great William Moore (Hayti, Mo.) was earlier this week named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week, by the NFL office, for his outstanding play in helping lead the Atlanta Falcons to a 23-13 win last week over the New Orleans Saints.
Here were some notes from the NFL office about Moore's award:
Moore had a game-high 11 tackles and two interceptions in the Falcons' 23-13 win over New Orleans. Atlanta clinched the NFC South division in Week 13.
The performance was Moore's first career two-interception game. He led an Atlanta defense that registered five interceptions, the most by the Falcons since November 9, 1980. It marked the first time in DREW BREES' career that he was intercepted five times in a game.
Atlanta's defense held Brees without a touchdown pass, ending his NFL-record streak of 54 consecutive games with a touchdown pass. The last time Brees did not throw a touchdown pass in a game was October 4, 2009.
Moore's 11 tackles and nine solo tackles both set new career-highs. This season, Moore leads the team with 75 tackles and 59 solo tackles. He ranks second on the club with four interceptions.
In his fourth year from Missouri, this is Moore's first career Player of the Week Award.
In the past 15 years, Moore, THOMAS DE COUD (Week 6, 2009) and LAWYER MILLOY (Week 13, 2006) are the only Atlanta safeties to be named Defensive Player of the Week.
