With 13 seconds left, DeSean Jackson never thought he’d get a chance to win the game.
Matt Dodge was ordered by Giants coach Tom Coughlin to punt away from the Eagles’ elusive return man.
The rookie punted all right, straight to Jackson, who fumbled the ball before taking off on one of the greatest plays in NFL history — a breathtaking 65-yard punt return for the winning touchdown on the final play of the game.
The Eagles scored 28 points in the final 7:18 and beat the New York Giants 38-31 at the New Meadowlands Stadium, a bitter loss that revived memories of “The Miracle at the Meadowlands” in 1978.
Call this one “The Miracle at the New Meadowlands.”
