DeSean Jackson reaches out to Utah WR who dropped ball before scoring
Jackson did the same thing, a mistake that will probably be associated with his name for a long time. When Jackson was a rookie with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008, during a "Monday Night Football" game at Dallas he dropped the ball before he crossed the goal line, negating a sure 61-yard touchdown. It's probably remembered so well because erasing that touchdown provided the most famous bad beat in fantasy football history. Jackson, who is now with the Washington Redskins, admits he had a touchdown dance planned and was a little too excited to get to it.
When Utah's Kaelin Clay made the same mistake, Jackson felt for him. Clay's postgame comments, in which he rightfully took responsibility for the error, were heartbreaking. Instead of Utah going up 14-0, Oregon's touchdown on the return made it 7-7. And how's this for a small-world coincidence: Jackson and Clay both attended Long Beach Poly High School.
According to an NFL Network interview, in the video above, Jackson called Clay's father and relayed words of encouragement and advice. Jackson said he wanted Clay to know not to get down on himself. That's a pretty gracious move.
"It's a bonehead mistake. Hopefully he'll learn from that," Jackson (who actually gave away another touchdown at a high-school all-star game with a premature celebration) said on NFL Network. "I did it one time and you'll never, ever see it again."
It's an embarrassing play, one that most sports fans have seen by now. Hopefully Clay can move on from it and turn it into a positive, like Jackson has.

Chicago Bears vs. Dallas Cowboys betting preview
Sunday, 1:00 p.m. EDT
Sportsbook.com Lines: Dallas -7.5; Total: 40.5
The Cowboys unexpectedly dropped their season opener Sunday night to the Washington Redskins. They also lost LB DeMarcus Ware with a stinger, but further tests showed no damage and Ware is expected to play Sunday. Considering Ware is the best defensive player in Dallas, with 65.5 sacks and 23 forced fumbles in five-plus NFL seasons, this is great news for Dallas fans and loyal bettors.
Reports out of Dallas are also positive about its offensive line. RT Marc Colombo and LG Kyle Kosier, who both missed Week 1 with knee injuries, are both expected to suit up against the Bears. Colombo was sorely missed in the Redskins loss, as his replacement Alex Barron had a terrible day. These additions will make QB Tony Romo feel more secure against a strong Bears pass defense that allowed just 148 yards on 34 pass attempts in their win over Detroit.
These teams have only met twice since 2000, with Dallas winning both meetings handily (21-7 in 2004 and 34-10 in 2007). This betting trend found at Sportsbook.com expects another Dallas win based on Bears coach Lovie Smith’s past history coming off a strong offensive game.
Smith is 1-9 ATS (-8.9 Units) after gaining 6 or more yards/play in their previous game as the coach of CHICAGO. The average score was CHICAGO 18.1, OPPONENT 20.8 - (Rating = 2*).
After reading the following betting trend, the Under also seems like a wise bet: Play Under - Any team against the total (CHICAGO) - in conference games, first 2 weeks of the year, non-playoff team from prior season who won their last 2 games. (34-13 over the last 10 seasons.) (72.3%, +19.7 units. Rating = 2*).
CHICAGO is 8-1 UNDER (+6.9 Units) as an underdog over the last 2 seasons.
The average score was CHICAGO 15.4, OPPONENT 23.1 - (Rating = 1*).
