Cardinals’ Tyrann Mathieu with devestating hit to Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (Video)


In the seemingly annual ‘Battle of the Birds’, the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles took to the field today and so far have given us a pretty entertaining matchup.

We’ve seen some long runs. We’ve seen some impressive passes. We’ve seen some jaw dropping catches. We’ve even seen both teams give us a comical moment with a fumble which neither team seemed interested in recovering.

But all of those might take a back seat to the hit Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSeasn Jackson took as Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu absolutely destroyed the speedy wideout.

On a 2nd and 6, the Eagles who were near midfield decided they’d attempt to run a quick screen pass. Quarterback Nick Foles tossed it quickly to Jackson, a play which Mathieu clearly read as he plowed right into Jackson, plowing him into the ground.
