The interception led to another Panthers score to go up 35-20 - thanks to Kyle Allen's fourth touchdown of the day.
It didn't take long for Jackson to make his impact, yet again.
Backed up on their own 5-yard line with 4:51 left in the game, Murray again tried to test Jackson.
Another rookie mistake for Murray.
It also marks consecutive seasons in which Jackson has grabbed two interceptions in a single game.
Jackson picked off Andy Dalton twice nearly a year ago in a 31-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
"It’s a huge step,” Rivera said. “I like to tell him, ‘As long as you play disciplined and keep your eyes in the right spot, you’ll get opportunities to make plays.’ And that’s what he did.”
Jackson gave a lot of credit for his play to his teammates up front on the defensive line, who harassed Murray to the tune of eight sacks and numerous pressures.
“That’s where the most credit goes,” he said. “All week we were flawless at practice. The rush and the secondary were working together, and everything was clicking. It was just a great week of practice, so we kind of already knew that we were going to come out here and execute, because we were just flawless all week. That rush, that was the reason for those two picks. I give the credit to those guys."
What’s the most important thing Rivera is looking for the rest of the way out of Jackson?
"That’s of the biggest importance, to get him to play consistently. That’s what you want,” Rivera said. “You want him to play his game. He’s got that kind of skillset. He showed you today with two interceptions. He’s a young guy and he’s easy to influence."
“We need to keep him on the straight and narrow."
Jackson currently has six career interceptions, which leads the team since the start of the 2018 season.
