1999 (Week 9)
- 6 catches
- 91 yards
- 2 touchdowns
With the Vikings coming off a magical season in 1998, the NFL figured a Monday night matchup against the Cowboys in 1999 had the potential to be one of the year’s best games. However, Minnesota came into the matchup with just a 4-4 record and Dallas wasn’t much better as they were only 4-3.
Things weren’t looking too good for the Vikings at first as the Cowboys stormed out to a 17-0 lead midway through the second quarter. But luckily for Minnesota, they had this guy Randy Moss on their roster.
Moss was shut out for most of the first half, but his four-yard touchdown catch near the end of the second quarter gave the Vikings life and it cut their deficit to 10 points as they headed in the locker room for halftime.
Minnesota played much better in the second half and midway through the fourth quarter they were leading Dallas by a score of 20-17. The Vikings then sealed the win when quarterback Jeff George launched a 47-yard bomb down the field that landed in the hands of Moss for a big touchdown.
Just when the Cowboys started to think they were doing well at keeping the talented receiver in check, he caught them sleeping and made a trip to the end zone that resulted in Minnesota earning a 27-17 victory.
