Jackson Hits 1,000-Yard Mark

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson hauled in a beautiful pass down the right sideline from quarterback Nick Foles for a 25-yard gain late in the second quarter to go over the 1,000-yard mark on the season for the third time in his career.

Jackson entered Sunday ranked sixth in the league and second in the NFC in receiving yards with 985. This is Jackson's first 1,000-yard season since back-to-back campaigns in 2009 and 2010. He was selected to go to the Pro Bowl in each of those two seasons.

Jackson joins Eagles Hall of Fame receivers Harold Carmichael and Mike Quick as the only receivers in franchise history with three 1,000-yard seasons. Quick owns the single-season franchise record with 1,409 yards, which was set in 1983.
