Steven Jackson Comes Alive In Third Quarter, St. Louis Rams Take 33-13 Lead

The St. Louis Rams have a season-high 33 points, and after a first half in which he did nothing at all Steven Jackson broke free of the Denver Broncos in the third quarter, getting the Rams to the one yard line for a Kenneth Darby touchdown. Jackson now has 49 yards on 18 carries, after picking up just 20 in his first 14. It’s only the second time all season that the Rams have broken 30 points, and it comes with first place in the NFC West on the line.

The Rams’ drive was built on a Knowshon Moreno fumble, forced by O.J. Atogwe and recovered by Na’il Diggs at the Broncos’ 31. From there Jackson rushed for 20, four, and six yards on consecutive attempts. After an incomplete pass attempt to Jackson left him slow in getting up Darby had no trouble walking in for the touchdown. The touchdown was Kenneth Darby’s first carry of the afternoon.
