As we’ve seen over the years, DeSean Jackson is quite comfortable playing the role of antagonist. So it is no surprise that he egged on both Eagles defenders and fans alike after each big play he made Sunday.
And there were a couple of them — none bigger than the 81-yard touchdown catch and run late in the third quarter that knotted the game at 27-27. Using that world-class speed, he flew past Cary Williams into daylight and snared a pretty pass from Kirk Cousins in stride. At the end of the play, a taunt in the direction of Nate Allen, a mocking flap of the arms and a defiant kick of the air to cap his touchdown celebration.
“I’m glad I wasn’t the one trying to tackle him because as a defender, one, you’re already mad you gave up a score,” said Malcolm Jenkins. “But the entire environment and situation and context in which he celebrated is obviously a little smack in the face.

The Eagles take on the Steelers tonight at 7:30 at the Linc. Here’s what we’ll be keeping an eye on:
WR situation – Riley Cooper is scheduled to see his first preseason action. The Eagles will likely ease him in, but we’ll get a sense of how Cooper’s holding up after suffering a foot injury earlier in training camp. Jeremy Maclin‘s (hamstring) status for tonight is unknown.
And then there’s Jordan Matthews. He had nine catches vs. the Patriots, but only one came against New England’s starters. With Brad Smith likely sidelined, Matthews should get a chance to go with the first team. We’ve said all along that he’ll be the first-team slot receiver once the real games begin. He can solidify that standing with a good showing vs. Pittsburgh. Read more »
