Video: DeSean Jackson Loses a Touchdown Celebrating Before End Zone

I guess it’s kind of hard to completely call it celebrating because he really wasn’t taunting or dancing, but DeSean Jackson was definitely in error when he released the ball prior to reaching the end zone. Jackson had just caught a bomb from Donovan McNabb in the 2nd quarter of the Cowboys/Eagles Monday Night game and was cruising into the end zone untouched when he released the trigger too quickly. Check out this boneheaded play by Jackson:

Luckily Brian Westbrook punched it in after the mistake, giving the Eagles their 27-21 lead so the outcome wasn’t altered. I’m pretty darn sure that we won’t be seeing Jackson celebrate anytime too soon after that one. Still looking for his first career touchdown, he’s gotta be regretting that mistake.

    It’s a shame nobody picked up the ball. I was screaming about that even before the replay. Jerry Rice used to do this all the time and get away with
    it. The NFL rule on something like that should be the ball turned over to ther other team at the spot or 20 yard line.

    There must be something about
    MNF that weirds out wide receivers. In the 1970’s, Pittsburgh wide receiver Dave Smith spiked a ball on the two yard line and it rolled through the end zone for an embarrassing touchback.

    When it comes to dumb moves though, everything begins and ends with Leon Lett without a doubt.

    You’re right about that. He would have been out of football for either of his two most famous faux pas if he weren’t so talented.
