Jenkins’ two picks for TDs leads to Rams win

St. Louis Rams rookie Janoris Jenkins returned two interceptions for touchdowns as Arizona rookie Ryan Lindley was intercepted four times in his first NFL start, as the Rams hand the Arizona Cardinals their seventh loss in a row, 31-17. It is the first time since 1960 that an NFL rookie has returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the same game.

Jenkins’ returns of 36 and 39 yards ended the Rams’ streak of five straight games without an opponent turnover.

Sam Bradford had a pair of 37-yard touchdown passes to Lance Kendricks and Chris Givens for the Rams who snapped a five-game winless streak. The Rams’ Steven Jackson rushed for 139 yards in 24 carries.
