Rams 31, Cardinals 17

Jenkins returns two INTs for scores

Related News/Archive

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Former Gator Janoris Jenkins became the first Ram and the first NFL rookie since the Browns' Bobby Franklin in 1960 to return two interceptions for touchdowns in the same game, and St. Louis sent the Cardinals to a seventh straight loss.

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

"A big relief," Jenkins said of ending the takeaway drought. "I felt the defense came out and we played together."

Sam Bradford had 37-yard touchdown passes to Lance Kendricks and Chris Givens as St. Louis dominated the second half and snapped a five-game skid.

Rookie Ryan Lindley, a sixth-round draft pick out of San Diego State and the third quarterback to start for Arizona this season, was intercepted four times in his first start.

"It was things that, it's unexplainable right now, but I made a bad play,'' Lindley said.
