Be honest, after a frustrating 2010 season and a quiet game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1, you were at least a little bit concerned about Vincent Jackson.
The San Diego Chargers' star WR used to put up 5+ catches for 100+ yards and a TD regularly, but in 2010 he only reached those numbers once (against the 49ers). Against the Vikings, VJax caught the ball only twice for 31 yards. Against the Patriots, he knew the lights and the pressure would be on him to perform up to his old standards.
In New England, Jackson set new career highs for receptions in a game (10) and receiving yards in a game (172). It was the 5th time in his seven-year career that he had multiple receiving TDs in a game. With Jackson having a career day and the rest of the team stinking against the Patriots, I think he's a pretty easy selection to get this week's game ball.
