The amazing career of Randy Moss could culminate with a Super Bowl victory.

Moss and the San Francisco 49ers rallied from 17-0 to defeat the Atlanta Falcons, 28-24, in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

For Vikings fans still hurting from the 1998-99 NFC Championship loss to the Falcons, 'Niners running back Frank Gore dissed Atlanta by doing the "Dirty Bird."

Moss reached the Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2007, but lost to the New York Giants.

A Super Bowl ring would keep Moss off a list that no player wants to be on: The list of NFL greats to never win the big game.

Barry Sanders, Dan Marino, Bud Grant and many other greats failed to win a championship.

Moss didn't reach the Super Bowl with the Vikings, Raiders or Titans.
