Jenkins Makes Play For The Ages

New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins made a play that will be talked about for years, in the team’s 30-27 victory, over the Dallas Cowboys, on Thanksgiving Day. James Varney, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

When safety Malcolm Jenkins entered New Orleans Saints lore by ripping a ball free in the closing minutes and giving his team a chance to win on Thanksgiving Day, New Orleanians rejoiced at a rare and improbable holiday gift.

For those who have watched Jenkins over the years, however, the forced fumble and recovery against the Dallas Cowboys produced yet another amazed shake of the head. The play seemed familiar to those who watched Jenkins lead Piscataway Township High School to three consecutive New Jersey prep championships, or those who saw him chase a Texas receiver down from behind at Ohio State.
