Malcolm Jenkins' Hustle Saves Touchdown, Sparks Defensive Stand

Will we look back at this series of plays as the turning point of the season for a Saints defense looking to improve?

Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins showed an incredible amount of hustle running down field and catching Tampa Bay receiver Vincent Jackson before the end zone following a 95-yard catch and run.

The Saints defense would end up getting the ball back after stopping the Buccaneers on four straight goal-to-go situations, a goal line stand that really got the defense fired up.

Might we look back at this stand as the defining turning point for the 2012 Saints defense as they look to improve?
