The Stat Line of the Night – 12/9/10 – Peyton Manning
The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/12/10 – DeSean Jackson
The Philadelphia Eagles’ DeSean Jackson may be small in stature, but when it comes to big-play receivers in the NFL, they don’t get much bigger than him. His game-changing ability was on display once again last night in a game against the Dallas Cowboys as he hauled in only four catches, but he sure did make the most of them.
While four receptions may only get most receivers something around 50 yards, Jackson was able to accumulate a total of 210 yards and a touchdown with his. The first big play came on the first play from scrimmage for the Eagles offense, as he and quarterback Michael Vick hooked up for a 60-yard pass completion. He then caught passes for 37 and 22 yards before capping off a one-play drive in the fourth quarter with a 91-yard catch-and-run for the touchdown. That score put the Eagles up 27-20 and they never looked back from there, on route to an important 30-27 victory over their division rivals.
Jackson is often criticized for his inconsistency, but there is no denying the fact that when he is on his game there are few receivers around the league that are as good as he is. He was definitely on last night and he earned our “Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday,. December 12, 2010.
