The closest part of Jenkins Blake could grab to stop the interception was his dreadlocks.So, Blake pulled Jenkins' hair. Blake's hair-pulling may not have been the only reason that Jenkins didn't grab his second interception of the season for the Saints, but it helped the cause and prevented a Falcons turnover during the first half of their Week 11 game.
