Philly connection strikes in South Florida

During the 2009 regular season, the Philadelphia Eagles' offense lived and died by the big play.

And it looks like the Pro Bowlers from Philly’s 11-5 squad packed their quick-strike capabilities in their suitcases for the 2010 Pro Bowl.

Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb hit Philly teammate/wide receiver DeSean Jackson for a 58-yard touchdown in the third quarter of Sunday’s NFL Pro Bowl to give the NFC team a 24-17 led at Sun Life Financial Stadium.

So far for the game, Jackson has hauled in four receptions for 82 yards on five targets. The second-year speedster has found the end zone twice and is currently a leading candidate for the game’s MVP award.

Unfortunately for the NFC, the lead didn’t last long.

Jaguars quarterback David Garrard just hit Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson for a 48-yard touchdown, tying the score at 24 a piece with 13:19 to play in the third quarter.
