Indianapolis Colts defensive back Kenny Moore had a great game on Sunday and made sure to let his haters know.

The Indianapolis Colts had a dominant victory on Sunday, defeating the Houston Texans 31-0. Jonathan Taylor was his usual self and the defense recorded their first road shutout since 1992.

While just about everyone on the Colts played an impressive game, it was all started by Kenny Moore. On the very first play from scrimmage, Moore jumped a route and intercepted a pass.

After Indianapolis scored, four defensive plays later, Moore punched a ball out of the arms of a Houston receiver, forcing his second turnover of the game.

Those two plays set the tone for not only the defense but the offense as well. Moore was the catalyst to this blowout victory and his efforts on Sunday were just another example of how well he’s been playing.

In case his play didn’t do enough talking, Moore took to Twitter after the game to let any doubters know that he’s been balling.

Kenny Moore demands respect after Colts dominate

Moore, who’s a good follow on Twitter, had a couple more tweets about how he was in his bag on Sunday, and they were pretty accurate. Beyond Sunday, though, Moore has been playing tremendously this season.

He has improved with every game, and he’s in the midst of a career year. Whether it’s his coverage, tackling, or turnover-forcing ability, Moore finds a way to make splash plays weekly.

If he is lucky, his growth will be awarded a Pro Bowl selection. More importantly for the Colts, his play has improved their secondary and gives them great chances to make the postseason.

With four games left on Indianapolis’ schedule, Moore will have plenty of opportunities to build on these stats. If he keeps producing games like the one on Sunday, he should be a lock for the Pro Bowl, but his sights will probably be on a bigger game.
