For the second straight week, LBS is fortunate enough to be sponsored by Chevy. Dropping by LBS and seeing the Chevy logo makes Del even prouder to step into his prized Silverado SS, so this week has been another week of even more enjoyment while cruising around. Another week of a Chevy sponsorship means another week of picking out the unsung heroes from this week’s NFL action. There were plenty of performances with the potential to be overlooked, so we picked out the ones that we thought were the best. Allow us to present Denarius Moore, Larry Fitzgerald, and Marshawn Lynch as our unsung heroes of Week 10.
Being that it was Week 10, the first Thursday night football game was played with the Raiders visiting the Chargers. In a game where nobody gave Oakland a shot to upset the explosive San Diego offense, Carson Palmer and company came up with some fireworks of their own. Palmer, who had thrown six interceptions in two games prior to Thursday, was able to establish fantastic chemistry with his receiving group early and often. He can thank Denarius Moore for most of that.
The rookie from Tennessee hauled in five catches for a whopping 123 yards and two of the Raiders’ three touchdowns. Moore looked impossible to cover at times, including when he burned the secondary for scores of 26 and 33 yards. Michael Bush was a more than admirable fill-in (242 total yards and a touchdown) for the injured Darren McFadden, but it was Moore who gave an already efficient running team the boost they needed in the passing game.
