The San Francisco 49ers jumped out to a 10-0 lead against the Green Bay Packers early in the second quarter thanks to none other than wide receiver Randy Moss, who pulled in a 14-yard touchdown from quarterback Alex Smith. As the 49ers' PR Twitter account pointed out, this touchdown grab has extra significance.

At the end of the 2010 season, it was unknown whether or not Moss would ever catch another NFL pass, let alone a touchdown.
Moss was wide open on the touchdown grab, running directly past Green Bay's secondary to reel in the score.
