49ers WR Randy Moss scores TD, now has 18 on 'Monday Night Football'

With the 49ers leading 17-0 midway through the third quarter of a one-sided game against the Cardinals, 35-year-old future Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss took what looked like an innocuous seven- or eight-yard gain and turned it into a Moss-ian 47-yard touchdown sprint, his first score since Week 1 against the Packers.

The best part: Moss' subdued TD celebration. Joe Buck would've been proud.

As far as legacies go, Moss now has 18 touchdowns in 19 Monday Night Football appearances, and this was the fifth touchdown that was for more than 40 yards. He ranks third behind Jerry Rice (34) and Terrell Owens (21).

The score also moved Moss into a tie for fourth place for most career touchdowns. He and T.O. have 156 behind Rice (208), Emmitt Smith (175) and LaDainian Tomlinson (162).
