Jacobsen recorded one interception during the match-up in Thunder end zone territory. This is his second interception for the season.
Jacobsen also forced a fumble that resulted in a Falcon run back for a touchdown. He also tallied one solo tackle and two tackle assists bringing him up to 16 tackles for the season.
