ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Eight months ago, a teary-eyed Rahim Moore stood in Denver's hushed locker room and took the blame for the Broncos' playoff pratfall against the Baltimore Ravens.
In many ways, he was taking one for the team - he was far from the only goat in that gut-wrenching double-overtime loss that jolted a franchise brimming with Super Bowl expectations.
The young safety's mistake was certainly the most memorable, though. He went for the interception instead of the tackle and came up short as Jacoby Jones hauled in Joe Flacco's high heave and trotted into the end zone for a 70-yard touchdown with 31 seconds left in regulation.
That stunning play served as a springboard to the Ravens' championship, and left a scar in Denver that will fade only if the Broncos can soon hoist their own Lombardi Trophy.
