Familiar territory

DeSean Jackson can fly, and he just added another long touchdown to his resume.

Familiar territory

DeSean Jackson can fly, and he just added another long touchdown to his resume. He took an end around 67 yards for a touchdown to give the Eagles an early 7-0 lead.

Big-play Jackson set an NFL record by opening the season with three consecutive games with touchdowns of at least 60 yards. He scored on an 85-yard punt return against Carolina, a 71-yard catch against New Orleans and a 64-yard catch against Kansas City. His score tonight was the ninth of his career, and the sixth of at least 60 yards. That's why Jon Gruden said that Jackson has had "more explosive plays than anybody in NFL history." That might be hyperbole, but that's the type of hype that Jackson is getting now.
