  • Philadelphia's DeSean Jackson returned a punt 65 yards for a touchdown as time expired in the Eagles' 38-31 win at the New York Giants. It is the only game-winning punt-return touchdown as time expired in NFL history. Jackson has scored a rushing, receiving and punt-return touchdown in each of his first three seasons and joins DICK TODD (Washington, 1939-41) as the only players in NFL history to accomplish the feat.
