Patriots defensive back Sterling Moore delivered the most surprising performance of the season finale. He had two interceptions, returned one for a touchdown, and changed the game. The former Raiders practice squader also danced on his way to the end zone, which didn’t draw quite the reaction you’d expect in the film room. “If anything,” Moore said with a smile, “a couple of the guys wanted a little bit more. Maybe I’ll come up with something a little bit better.” In all seriousness, Moore won NFL Pepsi Rookie of the Week honors, which is kinda cool. He tried to downplay it, saying the honor “doesn’t mean anything.” But what does the performance mean for him? “It just proved that this stage isn’t too big for me,” Moore said. “That I can go out and make plays. I always had confidence in what I can do. It was reassuring that I can do it… but I always had confidence. It didn’t boost me to another level or anything.”
