It seemed like the first half was just a minor blip for Ireland as they amazingly took the lead in the 62nd minute when Jackson managed to stretch out and touch the line after it looked like he was about to come up short.
Rory Best and Joe Schmidt blamed an bad first half that saw sluggish Ireland carved apart by Scotland on the way to an opening RBS 6 Nations defeat on Saturday.
The Scots had proudly declared the 2017 vintage ready to blossom into their best Test team in a generation, and here Vern Cotter's side started that process in fine style.
He added: "We probably just missed our timing".
From the lineout Scotland set up a driving maul and worked the ball patiently from west to east and back again for 12 phases, No 8 Josh Strauss was stopped on the line before Russell threw a looping wide pass to give full back Stuart Hogg an easy run in with Laidlaw converting.
Jackson was pinged for refusing to roll away at ruck however, allowing Laidlaw to slot the penalty and push Scotland back into a 24-22 lead.
A knock-on in contact from CJ Stander and then a misplaced pass from Devin Toner left Ireland scrambling in their own half.
The Comcast-Roku deal? She ain't so sweet
Cable companies argue the outlet charges cover their costs and the maintenance required to keep outlets working. His GOP replacement, Ajit Pai , has since taken the issue off the FCC's list of items on circulation .
It's one for the table quiz: Who were the first team to claim a Six Nations bonus point? By that stage momentum, and time was on Ireland's side to even claim a try-scoring bonus point.
"I thought we clawed our way back in the second half, I thought we shut down some of that attack".
"For us, especially as forwards, we weren't able to get our spacings right, get off the line, it's very frustrating".
Scotland had seven minutes to keep the ball to rebuff Ireland's second-half fightback, a job which was boosted considerably by Tommy Bowe's high tackle on Dunbar.
"We let slip chances. It's incredibly disappointing but I know that Vern and the Scottish lads will be happy with that to start their campaign".
Scotland made a mockery of any Ireland pretensions to this year's title in a first-half dismantling of boss Schmidt's much-vaunted game plan. You're always trying to bed things in as best you can in training, but until you actually get into the match arena with that pressure that comes with it, with that very slow ball we were getting in the first half, it does make things hard.
