Why the diff between these two ACLs?

1) ip access-list extended HTTP
permit tcp eq www any

2) ip access-list extended HTTP
permit tcp any eq www

I have applied this ACL to a qos policing policy. I'm getting hits with the first one but not with the second one. Not sure what I'm missing here but they look the same to me besides the order of entry.

Any thoughts?

    The first one says "permit from port 80 to any destination with any port"
    The second one says "permit from with any port to any destination with port 80."

    Obiviously I need refreshing on my ACL skills. I haven't done serious ACL work since my CCNA days. The way you explain it makes perfect sense.

    Thanks a lot fredrikjj!
