MINNEAPOLIS -- You won't see a more inexperienced throw than the one Minnesota quarterback Tarvaris Jackson just delivered into the hands of Philadelphia cornerback Asante Samuel.

I suppose it's possible that receiver Sidney Rice broke toward the sideline late or ran his pattern too deep. But it sure looked like Jackson telegraphed the sideline throw. Samuel easily detected it and raced 44 yards for a touchdown. The play gave the Eagles a 16-7 lead and totally deflated this Metrodome crowd.

It's one of the few rookie-like throws Jackson has made since returning to the starting lineup. But needless to say, it couldn't have come at a worse time for Minnesota.
