While fans only see the end result of a week's worth of preparation on Sundays, wide receiver
Jackson lined up in the slot to the left of quarterback
"All week in practice, we saw how they that on film," Jackson said.
Jackson said the play was initially supposed to be called one play prior on second down, but they got the green light on third-and-9 from the Giants' 19-yard line.
"It was great execution on that play," Jackson said.
It was the one successful red zone trip for the Eagles as Jackson finished with six catches for 99 yards and the touchdown. It was his sixth career touchdown against the Giants. In five of his last eight games against New York, Jackson has had at least 75 receiving yards. Jackson knows that if they took better care of their business in the red zone, they wouldn't have had to sweat Lawrence Tynes' 54-yard field goal attempt.
"Honestly, I feel we left a lot of points out there. Getting in the red zone three times and coming out with just three points is definitely very frustrating," Jackson said. "We felt a couple of times we had some things going, but we weren't able to uphold it and keep it going. We just kept letting them stay in the game. It was a great game. Anytime we play the Giants, this is what we have to expect; that it's going to go all the way down to the end.
"To be first in the division, we have to execute and come through on things like that."
With a 3-1 start and a 1-0 record in the division, the Eagles have the jump start they need. Now, like Jackson acknowledges, they must seal the deal when the opportunity arises.
