Kevin Kolb was just mobbed on the field. He couldn’t even get to the Eagles sideline before he was swarmed by his teammates, who were fired up that he threw a 71-yard bomb to DeSean Jackson for a touchdown to tie the game at 7-7. Donovan McNabb, wearing an Eagles visor, black shorts and a grey t-shirt over a black long-sleeved shirt, hugged Kolb, as did several other players before they streaked downfield for the point after attempt.
Kolb hit Jackson perfectly over his shoulder with nothing but green turf in front of him. It was the longest reception of Jackson’s young career and it was Kolb’s first touchdown pass of his career. It was a heck of a way to begin his first career start, and Kolb’s teammates obviously knew it.
