Donte Jackson will extend his interception streak.
Now in his third year, “Action Jackson” has stepped up his game early this season with interceptions in back to back games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and LA Chargers.
Although Jackson has had a lot of growing up to do, he’s shown a knack for being near the football over the years. The former second-round pick has a total of nine interceptions since being drafted in 2018.
Jackson also bears the responsibility of covering the opponent’s best wide receiver, something takes very seriously.
"“Things are starting to slow down a little bit for me, so I’m able to get out there and just play more comfortable. When you have your coaches believing that you can go out there and you can cover anybody at any given time, that gives you added confidence to go out there and play.”"
Jackson could have a hefty assignment if DeAndre Hopkins suits up on Sunday.
Kyler Murray’s three interceptions in Arizona’s last game against the Lions were uncharacteristic of the second-year quarterback and I don’t anticipate another multi-interception game. However, if Hopkins starts and gets a lot of targets, Jackson should have an opportunity to make a few plays.
