New Orleans Saints defensive back Malcolm Jenkins, who stripped the ball away from Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams, giving the Saints an opportunity to come back and win the Thanksgiving Day game in Dallas, has been named the NFC defensive player of the week.
Jenkins made the biggest defensive play of the season when he tracked down Williams at the Saints' 11-yard line at the end of a 47-yard catch, with just more than three minutes remaining. Jenkins forced and recovered the fumble, which allowed the Saints to drive 89 yards for the go-ahead touchdown.
