WATCH: Derek Barnett scores first NFL touchdown as Eagles beat the Raiders

The rookie capped an Eagles’ win.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Former Tennessee great Derek Barnett capped off an Eagles win over the Raiders on Monday Night Football. It was a 4th and 10 play and the Raiders were just trying to get something — anything — going. The ball ended up being fumbled and Barnett did the rest.

That was Barnett’s first NFL touchdown of his career. The rookie pass rusher currently has five sacks for Philadelphia this year, playing behind Chris Long and Brandon Graham.

This play was certainly more of being in the right place at the right time, but still. That’s quite the Christmas present to Barnett as he caps off his night with a touchdown.

The Eagles just clinched the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, so we’ll get a chance to watch Barnett work in the post-season.
