DeSean Jackson's punt return was knockout punch to Giants, Jason Avant
DeSean Jackson's 65-yard punt return was lights out for the New York Giants -- and for Jackson's teammate, Jason Avant.
Avant had thrown a key block on Zak DeOssie, helping to spring Jackson for what is believed to be the first final-play punt return in an NFL game as the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Giants 38-31.
"When I saw [Jackson] break the initial wave, and I saw a lane to the right, I knew if I got [DeOssie], he was gonna score. So I just threw it in there. I knew he scored. Me being knocked out just reminded me of a dream I had of us winning on the last play, but I didn't know who it was against," Avant said.
