This time, Randy Moss did a simpler, less controversial celebration after he scored a touchdown at Lambeau Field.
He merely tucked the ball between his legs and pointed to the name on the back of his jersey.
The low-key celebration — not to be in any way confused with his 2004 “Moon over Lambeau” — marked Moss’s first touchdown since Week 7 of the 2010 season, when he also scored in Lambeau, and helped the San Francisco 49ers to a 30-22 victory over the Green Bay Packers.
The TD catch was the 154th of Moss’s career and put him alone in second place behind Jerry Rice on the all-time list. Moss previously had been tied with Terrell Owens, who recently was released after a brief stint with the Seattle Seahawks.
Moss, who did not start Sunday, took 21 snaps (to Mario Manningham’s 29) and had four receptions for 47 yards, including the 14-yard TD. He was, as SFgate.com’s Eric Branch put it, “a willing blocker,” who, on one play, “hit three defenders while blocking on a run play and was flattened as he attempted his final block.”
But the guy whose celebration stole the show from Moss was 49ers kicker David Akers, who tied the record with a 63-yarder — an eye-popping feat (watch here, via Yahoo) for him.
