DeSean Jackson Does his Leon Lett Impersonation in Wild MNF Classic

The game started off innocently enough, a David Akers field goal 4:16 into he first quarter. After that, all hell broke loose. The Cowboys truck right back with a Romo to T.O. 72 yard bomb and the scoring did not stop. In the end, the Cowboys had more ammunition and took down the win 41-37.

DeSean's folly came after what was a beautiful hook-up with McNabb in the second quarter. DeSean broke away from the Dallas defenders and flipped the ball behind his back and broke into his dance. Turns out he was not actually in the endzone when he dsicarded said ball. There is a DeSean mustard joke in here somewhere, but I just can't place it. Jackson's error did not ultimately cost his team the TD, since the refs gave the Eagles the ball back on the 1 and Brian Westbrook took it in. Jackson did have over 100 yards receiving and it looks like has solidified his place as one of the Eagles wide receivers and most electrifying players in the league. Romo recovered from an early INT and fumble in his own endzone by throwing for 312 yards and 3 TDs. McNabb played well himself going for 281 and a TD, he seems to be healthy and has a bravado that hasn't been seen from him in awhile. The game certainly lived up to the hype as these two teams figure to be in the race for the NFC title.

"...these two teams figure to be in the race for the NFC title." Wow, brilliant insight. Go out on a limb there, didn't you?!
