Mike Jenkins got the Cowboys' first turnover of the season on a Jake Delhomme bomb. Jenkins had a solid game with three tackles and pretty good coverage.
He's been locked in a battle with Orlando Scandrick for the starting job at right cornerback. Scandrick did not impress last week against the Giants and he was mostly unnoticeable against Carolina.
"It's real big for me because I always brag that I'm going to get the first interception and I think I did last year, too," Jenkins said of his pick. "We're all coming out as competitors and we're all going to see who can get the most interceptions and I'm trying to get that."
Jenkins had a pick taken away at Tampa Bay when Gerald Sensabaugh was flagged for defensive holding.
