DENVER (CBS4) – Denver Broncos rookie safety Rahim Moore is excited to travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers next Sunday. He was the guest on CBS4’s Xfinity Monday Live!
“It’s a historical field with great players who played there before,” Moore said. “It’s going to be a tough challenge for us and I’m excited for it.”
As a safety Moore expects to be very busy facing Aaron Rodgers, who loves to throw the ball downfield.
“I tip my hat off to him because I grew up watching him in college and the pros now and he’s a guy that does everything right; makes great decisions, he’s very polished and he knows what he’s doing; he’s very confident,” Moore said. “This is going to be the best team I’ve ever played against in my life so far.”
The Packers are undefeated so far in the young NFL season.
Moore also touched on how he plays his position. CBS4’s Vic Lombardi asked him why he lines up so far from the line of scrimmage.
“I am the babysitter of the defense, I’m the last line of defense,” Moore said. “I keep everything in front of me, because if I don’t it’s a touchdown. That’s how some of our defenses are designed.”
Denver is looking for its 400th regular-season victory Sunday, entering the contest with a 399-366-10 (.521) all-time record. The Broncos own the best all-time record against defending Super Bowl champions in NFL history with their 15-10 (.600) mark that includes postseason games.
Kickoff for the game on Sunday is set for 2:15 p.m. on CBS4.
