Terps in the NFL: J.C. Jackson takes league lead in interceptions

For the third straight game, New England Patriots cornerback J.C. Jackson recorded an interception.

Jackson’s performance against the Buffalo Bills Sunday secured him the NFL lead in interceptions with four picks.

The third-year man was mostly tasked with matching up against fellow former Terp Stefon Diggs. Jackson finished the game with five total tackles, three of which were solo, a pass deflection and the interception, which he returned for 25 yards.

His takeaway came from a pass from quarterback Josh Allen that was intended for Diggs.

With his fourth interception of the season, Jackson is now one shy from tying his career-high of five from 2019.
