Video: DeSean Jackson Catches 62 Yard TD

Michael Vick hit DeSean Jackson for a 62 yard TD to give the Eagles a 21-10 lead over the Redskins in the fourth quarter at Lincoln Financial Field. It was the kind of sight Eagles fans expected to see all year, but the pass was just the first time Jackson has scored from more than 40 yards out all year.

The play also set a few interesting marks. For Jackson, it put him over 900 yards receiving for the year, making him just the fifth player in NFL history to reach that plateau in each of his first four seasons. Jackson is of course a free agent after this season and is seeking a contract that will pay him amongst the elite WRs in the NFL. As much as this has been a disappointing year for him, he's just about 40 yards shy of 1,000.

The play also meant that the Eagles have set a single season franchise record for net yards. That will get heaped on the pile of stats that the Eagles have complied this season that fly in the face of their mediocre record.
