DeSean Jackson is the Eagles' all-time leader with four punts returned for touchdowns. Last season, he led the NFL with a 15.2-yard punt- return average and became the first player in league history to earn a Pro Bowl berth at two positions, wide receiver and return specialist. Here are his punt returns for scores:

On Sunday, Jackson's 65-yard TD return was the game-winning final play of the Eagles' 38-31 comeback victory over the Giants at New Meadowlands Stadium.

In 2009, Jackson had an 85-yard return for a TD against Carolina in a season-opening 38-10 win at home on Sept. 13 and a 72-yard TD return against the Giants in a 45-38 win at the old Meadowlands on Dec. 14.
