WATCH: Tyrann Mathieu Destroys Desean Jackson
There was a lot of hard hitting action in yesterday’s thrilling game featuring the Philadelphia Eagles and the Arizona Cardinals, but Tyrann Mathieu’s hit on Desean Jackson stands above the rest. The phenom rookie laid out the speedster on a short pass, leaving Jackson laying seemingly broken on the field.
Nobody was seriously injured, but Jackson was quiet for the rest of the game. The Philadelphia Eagles ultimately won the game 21-24. Both teams are currently in the playoff hunt, and this game was a back breaking one for Arizona, who is now on the outside looking in when it comes to the wildcard race. Their saving grace this season has been the play of rookie Tyrann Mathieu, who has made plays such as this regularly all season long.
If the Cardinals do make the playoffs and end up facing the Eagles, you can bet that neither of these players will forget about this play.
