Two interception returns for touchdowns were enough for Rams' rookie Janoris Jenkins to take home NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week after intercepting two passes and returning them both for touchdowns in Week 12's 31-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
The rookie out of North Alabama picked off fellow rookie and Cardinals quarterback, Ryan Lindley, in the second and third quarter of Sunday's contest. Jenkins brought the first interception back 36 yards to tie the score at seven at the time, then gave St. Louis a 28-17 lead in the third quarter following his second pick and subsequent 39-yard return to the end zone.
SB Nation's own Turf Show Times goes frame-by-frame to dissect what led to Jenkins's second pick-six of the day against Lindley and the Cardinals.
For the season, Jenkins now has three total interceptions, 47 tackles and 12 passes defensed.
