Patriots cornerback J.C. Jackson was at it again on Sunday against the Titans.

Jackson forced a fumble and recorded an interception in the end zone off a deflection in the Patriots' win. It was Jackson's seventh interception of the season, but even more impressive is it continues his dominance over the last several seasons.

Since 2019, Jackson has 21 interceptions -- the next closest player is Xavien Howard, who has 14. Also, according to ESPN Stats & Info, his 24 career interceptions are tied for third-most by a player in his first four seasons since the 1970 merger.


Jackson's interception basically fell into his hands following a Devin McCourty deflection, but it's still being in the right place at the right time -- which happens often with him.

"J.C., you leave any trash laying around, he's going to pick it up," Bill Belichick said.

Jackson's forced fumble was definitely the more impressive play. It came following a long D'Onta Forman run into Patriots territory, but he didn't give up on the play, chased him from behind and punched the ball loose.

"We talk about it but ultimately the players have to make that split-second decision as they are coming out in the ball and coming out on tackle and be able to get that punch and get that pressure on the ball cleanly to get it out," Belichick said. "Sometimes it comes out. Sometimes it doesn't. But if you don't punch at it, it's not going to come out as much. Players really worked hard on that starting back in October, really, started putting a bigger emphasis on it for us and to help our offense just going the other way for us there, too. And it's nice to see that start to come out on the other side here."

Jackson is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason and there's no question he will be bringing all these stats to the negotiating table.
