2. Jenkins initially moves to cover the outside, but when he sees the hole develop to his right, he dips inside and efficiently blocks Aaron Davis, who is in position to make the tackle.
3. Note that the left offensive tackle, Sterling Bailey, defeated his man and would have been able to make the tackle or assist, at least, if Jenkins had covered the outside gap and turned the running back into the hole.
