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.

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.”

Said quarterback Alex Smith, who outplayed Aaron Rodgers: “We got what we were looking for and he blew open. His eyes lit up bigger than mine, and he made a great catch.”

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.
