Indianapolis Colts DB Kenny Moore showed off a ridiculous one-handed interception.
With Derek Carr rumbling towards the end zone and the announcers completely head-over-heels in praising his “Mark Davis Mamba” play call and relationship with Kobe Bryant (???), Colts DB Kenny Moore decided to firmly change the momentum.
With just over 3:30 left in the first half, Carr lofted one into the left corner of the end zone out of Moore’s reach — but somehow not out of his grasp.
The Pro Bowl hopeful did his very best Odell Beckham Jr. impression, getting just one mitt on the ball and somehow coming down with it in bounds to flip the field entirely. Mercy.
Moore took that rainbow from Carr and sprinkled it with dew. That’s as strong of an interception as you’ll ever see, especially at such a pivot point of such a crucial game.
This is an 8-4 team trying to assert themselves on the road against a 7-5 playoff hopeful that their current quarterback just so happens to hate based on his previous years in their division. Does it get more poetic than Moore?!
What more can you say? Even the beat writers were speechless.
That’s about it right there.
Perhaps you’d like to see a side angle? Of course you would.
Or maybe you’d prefer the still image version, framed and hung in a museum? We’ve got you there, too.
On a day previously defined by Xavien Howard’s acrobatic work in Miami, Moore somehow might have come out on top in the battle of exceptional DB behavior.
The Colts’ defense gets plenty of love, but perhaps we should reserve some of our praise for the secondary. Hope DeForest Buckner doesn’t mind.
Hopefully, there’s more magic to come in the second half of this one, and Nelson Agholor isn’t involved whatsoever. A complete pain.
