Shaky effort in return from groin injury, including a 28-yard punt

PLAYER OF THE GAME

DeSean Jackson

Last year, he dropped a potentially game-winning touchdown pass in a loss to the Redskins. Consider him redeemed. The speedy wideout gave his team an early 7-0 lead with a scintillating 67-yard touchdown run, then followed with a 57-yard scoring reception. For the second straight year, Jackson has touchdowns on returns, rushes and receptions.
