Passes don’t often come the way of former LSU tight end Foster Moreau of the Las Vegas Raiders.
But when they do, he usually catches them.
Entering this weekend, all of Moreau’s catches in this 2020 season came in the first four weeks. He hadn’t had a reception in two months.
Moreau’s dry spell ended Sunday. He had one catch, but made it count as he grabbed a 47-yard TD pass from Derek Carr for the Raiders’ first points of the day in a 44-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Moreau caught the ball at the Colts 27, juked the Indianapolis safety at the 20 and sprinted in for the score.
A second-year pro who was picked in fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Moreau has five catches for 111 yards and two TDs this season in limited playing time.
