Raiders’ DeSean Jackson forgets to run to the finish zone, and immediately stumbles

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson seemed to have a landing reception. Instead, he ran back and took the ball in front of the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The Las Vegas Raiders, needing a wide receiver depth, gave DeSean Jackson a call and signed him to a deal for the remainder of the season. The veteran wide receiver requested a deal from the Los Angeles Rams, but was released after the deadline passed when they could not find a deal. Jackson made his first-team debut Sunday night in a pivotal West Asia game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the third quarter, quarterback Derek Carr-Jackson hit with a massive pass. Jackson had an easy path to the end zone, but the wide player decided to walk away from the leader’s defensive back.

Jackson then flopped after fullback Rashad Fenton hit the ball from his hands and Terran Mathieu recovered it.

DeSean Jackson fumbles on potential landings against bosses

Philadelphia Eagles fans had flashbacks to Jackson dropping the ball before crossing the end zone against the Dallas Cowboys many years ago. Not the ideal situation for both Jackson and the Invaders.

Things only got worse for Las Vegas, as Kansas City expanded its lead to 27-14 nine games later on a 35-yard field goal by Harrison Boetker. On the next route, Carr threw a pass assigned to Zee Jones, but was intercepted by Daniel Sorensen. From there, quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw touchdown passes on their next two leads to extend the score to 41-14.

With that game out of hand, Jackson and Las Vegas will be looking to rebound next week when they face the Cincinnati Bengals.
