Malcolm Jenkins became the eighth former Ohio State football player to win two Super Bowls, and the first Buckeye to win the Super Bowl with two different NFL teams, when the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots, 41-33, in Sunday's Super Bowl LII.
Jenkins recorded four tackles and a pass breakup to help lead the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory ever, eight years after he helped the New Orleans Saints win their first Super Bowl ever in his NFL rookie season.
Although it wasn't Jenkins' first Super Bowl victory, it was evident after the game that his second Super Bowl win was just as special.

“I ain't never been a part of nothing like this, ain't seen nothing like this," Jenkins told his teammates during a postgame address in the locker room, which you can see starting at the 1:08 mark in the video below (NSFW), courtesy of CBS3 Philadelphia's Pat Gallen.
While seven Buckeyes before Jenkins won multiple Super Bowls, and seven Buckeyes before Jenkins played in Super Bowls with multiple teams, no Buckeye had ever won Super Bowls with two different franchises – or won Super Bowls more than four years apart – before Jenkins accomplished the feat on Sunday.

For Jenkins, who played for Ohio State from 2005-08 and was both a consensus All-American and the Jim Thorpe Award in his final season as a Buckeye, his second Super Bowl victory concludes his ninth season in the NFL and fourth season with the Eagles, in which he was named a Pro Bowler for the second time in his career.
