Jackson donation lands in Canton

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson became the third player in NFL history to score an 80-yard touchdown reception both for and against the same team. This is the jersey and gloves he wore and the football he caught for a TD in Week 3 against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jackson’s mementos are on exhibit inside the Hall’s Pro Football Today Gallery.
Gold Jacket Charlie Joiner and Art Powell were the only other players to reach this feat.

Jackson hauled in a 81-yard pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins and broke a tackle to find the end zone. While he was with the Eagles, Jackson raced pass the defenders to find himself open for an 88-yard touchdown. Here are the plays from NFL.com

Pro Football Hall of Famer Charlie Joiner (Houston Oilers) and Art Powell (Oakland Raiders) are the only others to achieve this feat.
