Santana Moss made his proper introduction to Washington with two touchdowns and two hugs, one each for Chief Zee and Clinton Portis.
Moss caught four passes for 96 yards against the Bears in his first game as a Redskin, but the receiver said earlier he considers a Week 2 performance at Dallas in 2005 his debut.
In the “Monday Night Miracle,” Moss caught two touchdowns in the final five minutes as the Redskins beat the Cowboys, 14-13.
“It’s always somebody, somewhere, anywhere I go, that has that memory. It’s still in their head, and they always bring it up to me. So it’s a pleasrue to be on the other side of that,” Moss told Chris Paul on Redskins Late Night.

Watch Moss relive that memory and talk about how his size stoked a competitive fire in the second edition of, “Best of Redskins Late Night.”
