Did DeSean Jackson’s Injury Cost the Philadelphia Eagles a Playoff Victory?

Everybody saw the injury to DeSean Jackson today.
With about seven minutes left in the first quarter, the Eagles' best playmaker injured his left knee when running back LeSean McCoy fell on Jackson.
Jackson left the game. He missed a little more than a full quarter before returning.
When he returned, he was limited by his injury. He didn't catch his first pass until halfway through the fourth quarter.
For the game, he caught just two passes. The first was a 19-yard play, and the second gained 28 yards.
Considering the score of the game, 21-16, I do believe that the injury to DeSean Jackson cost the Eagles the game.
Yes, I think the Eagles would have won if Jackson had not been injured.
I'm not making excuses. As I stated in my last article, the Packers were the better team and they deserved to win.
But I think they would have lost if not for the injury to Philly's big home run hitter.
Jackson missed one full quarter, which is a long time.
