Atlanta Falcons strong safety William Moore has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

In Thursday night’s 23-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints, Moore had 13 tackles, two interceptions, and two tackles for loss. On the season, Moore has recorded 75 tackles, four interceptions, two forced forced fumbles, and one sack.

The safety is in the last year of his rookie deal, and he’s been playing at a Pro Bowl level this season. He’s going to demand a nice contract, and the Falcons would be making a huge mistake if they fail to re-sign him.
