Cardinals vs. Rams score update: Janoris Jenkins intercepts Ryan Lindley for pick-6 touchdown

Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE

Janoris Jenkins ends the St. Louis Rams' turnover drought and scores their first touchdown of Week 12.

Janoris Jenkins and the St. Louis Rams got their first turnover in five games against Ryan Lindley and the Arizona Cardinals to start the second quarter on Sunday, and it happened exactly like they might have hoped: Jenkins took an errant Lindley pass 36 yards into the end zone for the Rams' first touchdown, tying the score at 7-7. It's Jenkins's second career interception, and his first touchdown.

And it's exactly what the Rams defense needed, after it was instrumental in Lindley and the Cardinals scoring on their first-quarter drive. Then, Quintin Mikell's personal foul extended a Cardinals drive that came up short after the Rams managed to stop Larry Fitzgerald on third-and-long; now, the Rams' defense stopped a Cardinals drive before it started, and provided a little offense while they were at it.

The Rams' defense has taken control of the game in the second quarter; they beat Lindley for a touchdown and then stuffed him on the Cardinals' next drive. Now it's up to Sam Bradford, Steven Jackson, and a quiet-looking Rams offense to put any points at all on the board.
