The Redskins are in the middle of a heated battle with division foe New York Giants. The Redskins dug themselves into a 21-9 hole against the new and improved Giants’ squad but were able to put some points up in a hurry when quarterback Kirk Cousins linked up with speedy-veteran DeSean Jackson for a 44-yard touchdown grab.

While much of the focus in this game is going to some of the other high profile players, Jackson is proving why he can’t be left alone. As he has done for years now, Jackson has used his lightning speed to beat defenders en route to three receptions for 84 yards and the touchdown shown above. Jackson would later be roughed up on a route near halftime and forced to limp off the field.

At halftime, the Giants currently lead the Redskins 21-16 in what is sure to be a classic NFC East battle.
