Randy Moss Gets Vikings Highest Honor

Randy Moss Gets Vikings Highest Honor

On Monday Night Football, the Vikings honored Moss with a ceremony where they inducted him into their Ring of Honor, which contains only 22 of the best players ever to wear the purple and gold.

The pregame cleats were awesome and all, but the real moment came as the game was actually being played.

Diggs' cleats will feature Moss, pretending to moon the Green Bay crowd from that iconic NFC Wild Card Game back in 2005.

Paulo Dybala should consider Manchester United transfer move, says Mino Raiola
After this match, Juventus will travel to Spain to take on FC Barcelona in their Champions League group stage opener on Tuesday. Comparing Paulo Dybala with Lionel Messi is only going to "hurt" the Juventus talent, according to Edgar Davids.

Minnesota's passing attack looked reminiscent of those Moss-led teams nearly two decades ago, as wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen combined to catch 16 passes for 250 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Vikings' 29-19 eye-opening win over the New Orleans Saints. Moss played the first seven seasons of his career in Minnesota before stints in Oakland and New England.

Thielen, a Minnesota native, told Vikings.com that Moss's success "pushed me to play this game and try to play at the highest level because of what he did on the field".

Diggs' first touchdown pass was a much easier score, but only because the Saints defense is awful and got caught peaking on a lazy little play action fake from Sam Bradford. It's nice to see young talents like Diggs and Thielen paying tribute to Moss on a night where he's being honored.
