St. Louis Rams - Oakland Raiders First Quarter Update: Steven Jackson, Missed Field Goals Out Of Control

The scoreless first quarter of today’s contest between the St. Louis Rams and the Oakland Raiders was characterized by two scoring near-misses and a dominant start by Rams running back Steven Jackson. Jackson ran for 56 yards on eight carries and caught a pass from Sam Bradford for 17 yards more.

But the Rams and Raiders each repelled the other’s advances, and kickers Josh Brown and Sebastian Janikowski, pushed into bad position by staunch defenses, each missed their first field goal opportunities of the game. After one quarter in Oakland, no score.
