Now that we're just about a full 24 hours removed from the Eagles' Week 1 victory over the Redskins, it has been pretty well documented that DeSean Jackson played a vocal role in the win.

Not only did D-Jac record eight catches on ten targets for 154 yards and two scores on the field, but he was the one who broke the second half huddle hyping up his teammates. 

Malcolm Jenkins spoke about it on Monday's 94WIP Marks & Reese Show (Note: Jenkins will join Jon Marks and Ike Reese every Monday at 2:30pm throughout the season). 

"Usually before we go back out, somebody breaks the huddle and D-Jac was the one who broke it. And he just talked about it who we are, knowing that if we keep pressing on this team will fold. That all we gotta do is keep doing our jobs, everybody contribute, settle down, keep playing. It wasn't anything crazy. He didn't give an Any Given Sunday speech or anything."

While Carson Wentz was brilliant in his return to the field (28-39, 313, 3 TD, 0 INT), there's no doubt that Jackson was the top storyline of the day in Philadelphia. Number 10 is back.
