had a career game and one of the lone shining Bears' stars in the 26-0 shutout loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Jenkins accounted for ten tackles (4 solo, 6 assisted) and sacked quarterback Russell Wilson two times. He was on the field for 56 of 67 total snaps.

"The thing about it was finishing," Jenkins said via the Chicago Tribune. "We knew this guy likes to scramble a lot. We just stayed in our rush lanes and kept an eye on the quarterback. We got it done today, but there's still a lot of improving to do."

Jenkins was a second-round pick by the Washington Redskins in 2011.

He was named first-team All-ACC his senior season with 51 tackles (nine for loss) and 16 quarterback pressures.

Jenkins did a celebratory thrusting dance (and mocked Michael Bennett) after his sack in the first quarter.
