12/24/12 - CB Janoris Jenkins' three interception return touchdowns ties the franchise single-season record held by Monte Jackson (1976) and Rod Perry (1978). It also tied an NFL rookie record held by Ronnie Lott and Lem Barney. Jenkins' interception return was his fourth defensive score of the season. They have all happened in the last five games. "He's a huge playmaker," linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar said. "Any time that ball is up, he has a play to make on the ball. He's proven that over the course of the season, and I think he's just going to turn into a great pro if he just keeps working at it and stays humble." Jenkins has given up some big plays, but defensive end Chris Long said, "Some guys make mistakes and don't make any big plays. So I'll take the guy that's scored four touchdowns this year. He's got a really bright future. He's done a great job of just being mature and continuing to work at his craft. He's grown up a lot this year."
