4. Could the DJ Moore trade save Ryan Poles his job?

If there is one thing you can take away from this game, it is that D.J. Moore is legitimate. Only 56 yards were squarely against Patrick Surtain, but this was a heavyweight matchup between Moore and Surtain. Moore took those 56 yards and added 75 more to get to 131 against the Broncos.

Moore is up to 301 yards, which is 75.3 yards on 4.8 catches per game. He has a success rate of 62.5%. For his career, he averages 66.5 yards per game, 4.6 catches per game, and a success rate of 51.4%.

Moore is also averaging 2.02 yards per route run after the number of 1.94 for his career. This is setting up to be the best year of his career. When you factor in that he has squared off with Jaire Alexander, Patrick Surtain, and L'Jarius Sneed, there are strong signs that this pace could continue.

While some many things have failed, D.J. Moore has lived up to everything the Chicago Bears have asked of him. The only thing they need to see him do now is make the players around him better somehow.
