Falcons safety William Moore ought to be celebrating today, after helping the Falcons to a rare win.
Instead, he’s bracing for yet another fine, which will add to a hefty bill for the year.
Moore was flagged for leading with his head on Bills wide receiver Robert Woods, which is certain to draw some more mail from the league.
“As every other hit, I don’t know until I watch it on film,” Moore said, via Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. “Y’all seen it better than I did. I didn’t watch replay. It’s just happened so quick. And I guess I got to go appeal it, as every other one.”
He’s been fined $74,550 for four previous hits this season, raising the possibility of the kind of recidivism punishment that’s been doled out to Dashon Goldson and Michael Griffin lately.
That possibility comes at a time when he ought to be feeling good, after forcing the fumble in overtime that allowed the Falcons to win on the road.
