VIDEO: DeSean Jackson Makes 50-Yard Catch, Nullifies It With Taunting Penalty

DeSean Jackson is well-known for his flamboyance on the football field. But his emotional play has rarely backfired on the dynamic Cal product and his Eagles as badly as it did in the second quarter of Sunday night's game against the Giants.

Jackson incurred a personal foul for taunting, cancelling out a penalty on the Giants for illegal contact, and wiped out a long reception from Vince Young, which would have served as an escape from the shadow of their own goalposts and been Philly's longest play of the night.

On the bright side, Jackson did do his taunting in amusing fashion, flipping the ball at a Giants assistant coach in his typically insouciant manner and brushing himself off as he backpedaled his way back into the field of play.

If Jackson does anything particularly well, it is play the showman.
