“We beat ourselves,” Jeffery said after the game, per Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal.
The receiver was responsible for one of the biggest mistakes in the loss, as a dropped pass led to a game-ending interception for the Saints:

Philadelphia was driving for a potential go-ahead touchdown in the closing minutes but never got another chance with the ball.
Jeffery did find some support from quarterback Nick Foles, although he didn’t find much relief:

The ball slipped through Alshon Jeffrey’s hands, became an INT and QB Nick Foles immediately found him. What did Foles say? “He told me he loved playing w/ me and we wouldn’t have won a Super Bowl w/out me,” Jeffrey said. “Still, I let the city of Philadelphia down.”
The receiver finished with five catches and a team-high 63 receiving yards in the game.
