DeSean Jackson

Getty DeSean Jackson takes a knee before the Los Angeles Rams’ 34-24 home win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, September 26.

How quickly DeSean Jackson went from admitting to being “a little frustrated” over his lack of plays to nearly blowing the SoFi Stadium roof off through one play on Sunday, September 26, with the defending Super Bowl champions on the other side.

And this play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers not only captured the “D-Jax” of old, but finally showed why the Los Angeles Rams brought him in via free agency and got the 34-year-old to post the below caption.

On the opening series of the third quarter, Jackson streaked past two Buccaneer defensive backs and was all alone on this 75-yard strike that got the “Rams House” to erupt like a volcano full of euphoria.

The explosive touchdown put the Rams up 21-7 before cruising to the 34-24 home win in Inglewood. And that field explosion set social media aflame.

Online Reactions to “D-Jax” Bomb

Before that SoFi strike occurred, Stafford twice tried to hit Jackson deep but both passes fell short…all in the effort to give Jackson more targets and touches.

Then the 75-yarder let loose the loud roars. That long range six-pointer put Jackson in elite company, per ESPN Stats and Info.

He’s also officially three away from joining the legendary Jerry Rice on this list.

But after that 75-yarder, the reactions through tweets poured in. ESPN personality Bomani Jones cracked this joke about Jackson.

The Ringer’s Rodger Sherman was left in awe with how a man near his mid-30’s can still run that fast.

Josiah Johnson gave “D-Jax” an electric crip walk gif, as a tribute to the popular dance from Jackson’s native L.A.

Finally, the social media account of Jackson’s college alma mater chimed in.

Jackson Reacts to Reporters on First Rams TD

Jackson entered this game with 56 career touchdowns. He additionally had this drought: His last 100-yard day came on September 8, 2019 against Washington.

Well, he crossed the end zone in the same city where he scored his first touchdowns at nearby Darby Park and ended the day with this stat line: Three catches, 120 yards, an average of 40 yards a catch and the 75-yarder.

That play was so energizing, that “D-Jax” got the 35-year-old head coach of the Rams Sean McVay to sprint in excitement and looked like he was trying to keep up with his receiver himself. Jackson said to the L.A. media that McVay was the first one to greet him after the long bomb.

“I looked up, I came out the tunnel and I see him right there. He’s the first one there,” Jackson said. “I didn’t realize that it was going to be him. But we’ve got such a special relationship over the years. For him to be the first person I saw, it’s special.”

The touchdown is proof of the following: Jackson’s speed is yet to age and as it’s been the case over the years, the moment “D-Jax” gets behind defenders, it’s automatic six points — and this time he scored his latest deep pass in his hometown.

“I know my speed. Once I feel like I’m ahead of a defender, I feel like no one can catch me,” Jackson said. “Over the years, it’s just doing what I do: Bringing that flash to the game.”
