Bad Play Turns Out Good For Saints
Everybody knows that Malcolm Jenkins’ strip and fumble recovery in the New Orleans Saints’ 30-27 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday was a game-saving type of play. What many don’t know is that Jenkins made a mistake, initially on the play. Stephen Hawkins, of the Associated Press, has the story, courtesy of abcnews.com, below.
Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald #11 of the Arizona Cardinals attempts to catch a pass under pressure from Malcolm Jenkins #27 of the New Orleans Saints during the NFL game at the University of Phoenix Stadium on October 10, 2010 in Glendale, Arizona. The Cardinals defeated the Saints 30-20.
Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins admittedly took a bad angle at the same time one of the cornerbacks slipped. That left Roy Williams wide open and sprinting down the field seemingly about the seal an incredible Thanksgiving comeback for the Dallas Cowboys.
“Honestly, it could have been a catastrophe,” Jenkins said. “A bad play turned good for us.”
