Many former Terps continued to build on their strong 2019 campaigns in the NFL’s Week 14, with one reaching a significant season milestone.
WR DJ Moore
DJ Moore caught four passes for 81 yards and rushed one time for no gain in the Carolina Panthers’ 40-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The 2018 first-round pick now has 1,061 yards on the season, the first 1,000-yard season in his short NFL career. He currently sits fourth in the NFL in receiving yards, and eighth in catches with 78.
WR Stefon Diggs
Stefon Diggs hauled in six catches for 92 yards in the Minnesota Vikings’ 20-7 win over the Detroit Lions. With 997 yards receiving on the season, Diggs is just three yards shy of securing his second-consecutive 1,000-yard season. His 997 yards are good enough for tenth-best in the NFL.
