Raiders outside linebacker Sio Moore took to Instagram to call out 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, calling him a “freakin chump.”
Moore and his Oakland teammates made life miserable for Kaepernick during their 24-13 victory over the 49ers on Sunday, sacking him five times and picking him off twice. Kaepernick finished 18-of-33 for 174 yards and one touchdown. The loss put San Francisco's playoff hopes in jeopardy, dropping it to 7-6 and three games behind the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West.
In the Instagram post, Moore posted a photo of him and Kaepernick facing each other with the words, “There's a difference between boys and Men ... Freakin chump."
Moore had one tackle in the game, sacking Kaepernick in the first quarter.
Moore, who has 90 tackles and three sacks this season, was the linebacker who almost cost the Raiders a victory in a Week 12 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He sacked Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith late in the fourth quarter and then took off 30 yards upfield to celebrate while the Chiefs were hurrying to the line of scrimmage to snap the ball. Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck called timeout to prevent a penalty and preserve a 24-20 victory.
