NFL Update: Steven Jackson Dominates St. Louis Rams Offense In The Early Going

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, little-used in week one and practicing gingerly this week on a bad knee, dominated the Rams offense in their first two possessions of week two’s game against the Oakland Raiders.

The Rams’ first five plays were Jackson carries from scrimmage, in which he picked up 37 yards. Then Sam Bradford connected with him on a 17 yard pass before Jackson took one more carry for eight yards. The Rams only looked away from Jackson on their eighth play of the game, when Kenneth Darby ran up the middle for three yards.
