Jackson has no hard feelings against Eagles

You know that in most of the sports in the world all the scripts are written before the tournament begins. And just throw on his highlight reel and you're going to see the exact same receiver that we had here. However, the Washington Redskins do not run the ball frequent enough to keep the Eagles off balance and make the game go at their pace.

Jackson definitely can contribute to an offense at this stage in his career, and he still has that explosiveness that resulted in a career-year for him and McCoy in their final season with Philadelphia together. The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder, has 18 receptions for 278 yards and one touchdown. TE Jordan Reed caught nine passes for 129 yards and two TDs. The Eagles have the hardest remaining schedule in the entire NFL. The absence of the Redskins' leading receiver (33 catches, 316 yards, two touchdowns) should mean more opportunities for others, including wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who has been demonstrably frustrated by being overlooked and overthrown by quarterback Kirk Cousins. Meanwhile, the Redskins expect to get back the services of third-year cornerback Bashaud Breeland, sidelined the past two games by a severely sprained ankle.

"Compared to the Cleveland game, I thought it was a major improvement, that's for sure", Redskins coach Jay Gruden said of his linebackers and safeties bringing Ravens players to the ground quickly and consistently. Because it takes one time for a guy to say, 'OK, they're not going to throw deep, and then 11 will give you a deep one'.

"It's going to be a game highly anticipated". Sunday is the ideal occasion, especially with Jackson not ruling out the possibility of a return to his former team.

Matthews has been outspoken about the lack of big plays down the field from the Eagles' wide receiver group and seems to feel Treggs could offer a big-play threat if he were active. Jackson, 29, will turn 30 years old on December 1. "We got a good relationship when he was in Philly coaching, so I don't have no bad taste in my mouth versus him". He talked about his free agency during the Redskins conference call on Wednesday.

"It's cool, man", Jackson said of the fine. This should be a really good game, so getting points with the home team sounds good to me. "Hopefully it will still be here in Washington and not have to really worry about that, but you never know how this industry, how this business turns out, so you keep your options open, playing it smart, doing what you need to do to keep a job in the National Football League". Schwartz was not happy with their first half in Detroit where they allowed more points than the rest of the season combined.

Jackson has stated he sees himself playing another 5-7 years in the National Football League, and will most likely want this to be his last contract. In fact, 2013 is the only season in his entire career in which he played in every game. "Now we have a lot of healthy bodies that are good players that can cover, and I don't mind putting anybody out there at any given time". I could be at a cubicle right now instead of doing something I love with a great group of guys. I'm still fast. I haven't lost a step.
