Janoris Jenkins makes Rams history

Christian Petersen

With two interceptions returned for touchdowns, rookie cornerback Janoris Jenkins made St. Louis Rams history on Sunday during their win over Arizona.

Janoris Jenkins made St. Louis Rams history on Sunday with his two-touchdown game. The cornerback returned two interceptions into the end zone, a 36-yard return and a 39-yard return, becoming the first-ever Rams defender to put together two interceptions for points in a game in franchise history only 10 games into his career with the team.

Not only were the interceptions in St. Louis' 31-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals' history making, but they were also big boosts for the team after several weeks of less than stellar play. His first pick for a TD was the first takeaway by a Rams defender in five games.

The two-TD game by Jenkins was also the first by a rookie since 1960, and only the third ever by a rookie in NFL history.

St. Louis won't complain if they get a similar performance out of Jenkins next weekend, when they face the NFC East leading San Francisco 49ers.
