Rams vs. Packers score: Steven Jackson's fantasy football limbo ends as he scores 1st touchdown

Steven Jackson and the St. Louis Rams' running backs got more than three-quarters of the way into Week 7 of the 2012 season without a touchdown, but now No. 39 is tied with Sam Bradford for the team lead in rushing touchdowns, after his first TD of the season, a vintage, explosive six-yard run up the middle, brought the Rams to within 20-13 of the Green Bay Packers early in the 4th quarter.

Alas, it didn't last: Aaron Rodgers threw a perfect touchdown pass on 3rd-and-long to make it 27-13. But for a moment, at least, when the Rams needed it, Steven Jackson looked as good as ever. Here's an animated GIF, in case you forgot what that looked like:

Jackson continues to have his carries split by Daryl Richardson, but he's taking full advantage of the ones he gets, which could lead to a more conventional split if he continues to look this strong at midseason.
