DeSean Jackson Blows It Big Time

Christopher CostaContributor IFebruary 11, 2009

Rookie DeSean Jackson of the Philadelphia Eagles made a mistake that will live in sports infamy.

In a game against the Dallas Cowboys, Jackson caught a pass and broke away from the Dallas defense. Sprinting down the field, Jackson began to celebrate before actually crossing the plane. Announcers went crazy as Jackson threw the ball behind him at the 1-yard line.

When Jackson dropped the ball, Cowboys fans screamed a collective: "Ohhhhh!" The following morning, ESPN sportscasters showed the dismayed look of Eagles coach Andy Reid and criticized Jackson's rookie mistake. ESPN even created a montage of the worst mistakes in sports history.

Not only is this one of the funniest moments in sports, it is most likely one of the most infamous.
