4. January 18, 2009 - The bomb from Donovan McNabb - DeSean Jackson's first postseason TD.

DeSean Jackson continued to step up in his rookie year when it mattered most. During the NFC Championship game against the Arizona Cardinals. Philadelphia dug themselves into an early deficit.
The Cardinals had a 24-6 lead at halftime, but Philadelphia kept their opponent off of the scoreboard in the third quarter and eventually took the lead in the fourth frame.

Donovan McNabb found DeSean Jackson deep. The result was a beautiful toss and catch.

Philadelphia wouldn't win this one, but Jackson's touchdown reception gave the Eagles and their fanbase hope and a sign of things to come.

3. November 22nd, 2009 to December 27th, 2009 - Five consecutive games with a touchdown reception

AS great as DeSean was in his rookie campaign, he took his game to another level in year two. What transpired from mid-November of 2009 until the end of December was one of the best runs by an Eagles wideout ever.

Jackson tallied five straight games with a receiving touchdown. Each game resulted in an Eagles win. Four of the victorious were by a final margin of seven points or fewer.

The former California Golden Bear eclipsed 100 yards receiving in three of the five wins: 107 versus the Chicago Bears, 178 yards receiving and a 72-yard punt return touchdown versus the New York Giants, 140 yards receiving versus the 49ers.

Jackson further established himself as one of the premier versatile offensive playmakers in the league. As he did in year one, he proved that he was a force to be reckoned with.
