Moore even intercepted a pass from Broncos' quarterback Trevor Siemian.

In the third quarter, the Colts lost linebackers Jeremiah George (neck) and Jon Bostic (knee), and right guard Denzelle Good left with a knee injury.

Siemian was hurt in the first quarter of Thursday's 25-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts, when he was sacked heavily by Barkevious Mingo and came down heavily on his shoulder.

According to head coach Vance Joseph, the Denver Broncos have yet to decide whether Brock Osweiler or Paxton Lynch will be their starting quarterback for their Week 16 game against the Washington Redskins.


The Colts were up 10-7 at halftime and increased their lead to 13-7 on a 39-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri.

Siemian suffered a partial dislocation of his left shoulder in Thursday's win over the Colts, which will likely sideline him for the rest of the season, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

After Siemian's injury, Osweiler provided a spark for the offense with a almost flawless performance, passing for 194 yards and two touchdowns and running for another touchdown. Siemian landed on his non-throwing shoulder and did not return to the game - he had surgery on the same shoulder last offseason.

He was 12 of 17 with 194 yards and took the Broncos on three second-half scoring drives - giving the league's top-rated defense more than enough points.


For Indianapolis (3-11), it was more of the same.

The second Osweiler connected with Jeff Heuerman for a 54 yard touchdown pass with two minutes, 37 seconds to go.

Brock Osweiler of the Broncos dives into the end zone for a touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts on December 14, 2017 in Indianapolis. Indianapolis running back Frank Gore was limited to 31 yards on 10 carries.

The special teams was not without mistakes as Brandon McManus missed his first field goal attempt. After getting up off the turf, Siemian immediately grabbed for that left arm.
