It is not said often enough how important it was to the Arizona Cardinals’ defense to step up in the 17-10 win over the San Francisco 49ers. The defense that stops the 49ers offense four times on the fourth down, one of them for a touchdown, is almost unknown.

The offensive side of the ball wasn’t that dominant in the first three quarters and only brought up 10 points. But in the second quarter, rookie wide receiver Rondale Moore made one of the best catches you will ever see.

Former NFL player and over-the-top personality Pat McAfee has so many words when it comes to Moore’s skills.

“On the offensive side of the ball, I think Rondale Moore is option three, option four.”said McAfee on the Pat McAfee Show. “He’s dirty. He was a terrible interview on that show. I think he hates us. It was a bad conversation. That means absolutely nothing at this point in time to watch him play football in the NFL. He is fast. It’s grainy. He does plays and it seems like he always shows up. “

DeAndre Hopkins got the cue ball after the 17-10 win, which got the final touchdown in the fourth quarter and had six catches for 87 yards. While we all know about Hopkins and the moves he made to give the Cardinals the all-important touchdown, Moore shouldn’t go unnoticed.

Kingsbury has not been open about Moore’s attributes.

“We know what he’s going to do when the ball is in space,” said Kingsbury. “He doesn’t wear like a beginner. He has to keep working. We liked what we’ve seen so far. He always dialed in. He’s one of the smartest players there is. “

Now that Maxx Williams is likely to be out for the season, Moore should expect even more goals. And Kingsbury knows that Moore should be used more.

“He’ll probably have to touch the ball more. He goes out there and wants to be part of every piece. ” Kingsbury told Cardinals correspondent Paul Calvisi after the game. “He’s standing right next to me like a little dog, like, ‘What are you doing?’ While he looks at me. But he’s a great football player. “

Moore can be used in a variety of ways. To score the Cardinals’ first touchdown, Moore was used for a running game that amassed 26 yards. In her field goal in the second quarter, Moore made this highlight reel game. Yesterday, Moore met his team-mate Christian Kirk on the routes for the first time this season. Expect its production to increase.

No late second round rookie wide receiver should do what Moore is doing right now. He’s runner-up in yards after the catch, even with his limited number of targets.

Former NFL player and personality Nate Burleson had a segment on Good morning soccer on Moore’s toe-drag catch near the sideline and complimented Moore on his attributes.

“We’re seeing some of these young wide receivers establish themselves as some of the best in the business.”

If you’re cardinals or have a fantasy team, you know Moore hasn’t been used as much in the past two weeks. Moore only had five catches in the Jaguars and Rams games. But don’t twist it.

As Burleson said, “Can I just get a little more from Moore?” I think the world could get that back very soon.
