Jackson exposed the Giants’ secondary by beating them deep and in the intermediate game. The Giants had no answer for him despite doubling him and helping with a safety over the top. When Michael Vick got injured and Nick Foles was inserted into the lineup Jackson’s production didn’t dip at all as he continued to burn the Giants’ corners and safeties and scored a red zone touchdown.
This was a much needed effort from Jackson. He was coming off of two down games and needed a big effort for the Eagles to steal a road win from their hated nemesis. Jackson and the offense not only moved the ball but managed to score points especially in the second half.
Jackson will need to show up every week for this offense to perform at peak efficiency. If he and LeSean McCoy get shut down so goes the offense. Jackson needs to up his game and so do the Eagles’ other offensive players to perform at the highest level possible.
This was a good start for Jackson. He got what he wanted against a porous Giants secondary. It’s now time for the offense to get in high gear and perform the way it’s capable of the rest of the season, and that starts next Sunday.
