[Minnesota at Philadelphia, 9 p.m. Monday, WJLA-7, WMAR-2]


Number of touchdown catches by Randy Moss in eight Monday night games.


Eagles Coach Andy Reid's record on Monday night. He's 11-1 all-time in prime-time games.

Last week's game between the Packers and Panthers was the lowest-rated "Monday Night Football" season opener since at least 1994. But then again, last week's game had Brett Favre, Jake Delhomme and that's about it. This week's offering has -- to put it in poker terms, seemingly now familiar to 98.7 percent of the population -- four kings.

The Eagles' Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens and the Vikings' Daunte Culpepper and Randy Moss are arguably the most talented pass-and-catch teammates in the game today. Last week, McNabb and Owens seemed to have some sort of mind-meld going on, hooking up three times for scores (and, T.O., we loved the stoic Charles Atlas pose -- very retro). Meanwhile, Culpepper and Moss only hooked up four times, but two of them were for touchdowns.

So who has the edge? Let's go to the two smack-talking wide receivers. "I've got to say that it's me," Moss told USA Today when asked who's the best wide receiver in the league. "The comparison between the two of us . . . there is no comparison," Moss said in the Philadelphia Inquirer, which has already dubbed the game the "Thrilla in South Phila."
