The Hall of Fame wide receiver always seemed to kick his play up a notch whenever he helped the Minnesota Vikings defeat the Dallas Cowboys during his career.

Before he was eventually selected by the Minnesota Vikings, many thought that former Marshall wide receiver Randy Moss was going to be taken by the Dallas Cowboys in the 1998 NFL Draft.

However, the Cowboys decided to pass on Moss and they used their first-round selection on former North Carolina defensive end Greg Ellis instead. Despite Ellis going on to be a solid pass rusher during his time with Dallas, he was no Moss.

After the Cowboys decided not to draft him, the freakish receiver seemed to make them pay for their decision whenever he got the opportunity to go up against them. During his career with the Vikings, Moss faced off against Dallas six times and he led Minnesota to a victory in each game.

The numbers he put up against the Cowboys were astronomically impressive. In the six instances in which Moss took on Dallas in a Vikings uniform (including one playoff matchup), he hauled in a total of 30 passes for 607 yards and 10 touchdowns.

So which performance against the Cowboys by the Hall of Fame receiver should be regarded as his absolute best?
