Eagles DeSean Jackson said “emotions” caused his sideline outburst [video]


NFL Week 15’s theme seemed to be “emotion.” Cowboys Dez Bryant used that word to explain why he left the field early following the Cowboys lost. Eagles DeSean Jackson also used that word to describe his sideline outburst on Sunday.


Jackson and Eagles wide receiver coach Bob Bicknell were caught on camera having a heated exchange after a Nick Foles interception that was intended for Jackson.

Bicknell can be seen shouting toward Jackson as he walks by him on the sideline, and Jackson is seen screaming back toward Bicknell and then being restrained by Riley Cooper and Brent Celek and then LeSean McCoy.

“It was just a point in the game where you’re dealing with a lot of emotions involved, and it’s one of those things that happened,” Jackson said, per Comcast SportsNet Philly.

“I cannot really discuss what happened. That’s what happened, it is what it is. At the end of the day, we lost the game. We felt very comfortable and confident that we should be able to come out here and win, we just didn’t play good enough. We didn’t play good enough to win, and at the end of the day that’s all that matters.”
