As this season nears an end, week 16 will be a tough match-up for Janoris Jenkins. Rookie Jenkins will likely be matched up with veteran receiver Vincent Jackson in what should be a battle of experience.

Jackson, a big, physical receiver has been having an impressive season. The longtime Charger who is in his first year with the Buccaneers has caught eight touchdown passes and has over 1200 yards in receiving which is good for 5th in the NFL among receivers.

Jenkins and the Rams defense will have their hands full with the Buccaneers high-powered offense, however the Bucs are in the midst of a four game losing streak and are coming off a shutout vs. the New Orleans Saints in week 15.

Meanwhile, in St. Louis Rams follow a 36-22 loss to the Minnesota Vikings but prior to that have been playing some of their best football of the season. Individually, the Jack Rabbit (Janoris Jenkins) has been rounding into form as an elite corner back in this league.  His eight tackles in the loss to the Vikings was second on the team.

The Rams and Buccaneers kickoff on Sunday, 12/23 in Tampa Bay on Fox at 1:00 pm EST.
