Moss Ready For Big Game

After a disappointing season opener, Randy Moss is ready for a monster game Sunday vs. the Bears.

You could see the frustration on Randy Moss' face following the Vikings opening-day loss to the Chicago Bears. After catching a career low one pass and being thrown at just three times, Moss was a little angry.

"I can't remember the last time I caught one pass in a game," Moss told VU. "Maybe when I was in seventh or eighth grade.

He will look to make amends tomorrow as the Vikings return to action against the Chicago Bears. And the Bears may be just what the doctor ordered.

In six career games against Chicago, Moss has averaged six catches for 99 yards and a touchdown per game. The Vikings intend to get the passing game going early and Moss will be a key for that.
