Rams vs. Packers score update: Steven Jackson great in the 1st half as Rams trail

Nobody's worried about Steven Jackson, at least. The St. Louis Rams struggled to move things on offense, failing to find the end zone in the first half of their game vs. the Green Bay Packers in a way that was worryingly reminiscent of last week's loss to the Dolphins, but going into halftime nobody, not even his fantasy football owners, is worried about Steven Jackson, the Rams' aging and slow-starting star running back. He's got eight carries for 51 yards at the half, as the Rams trail by a score of 10-6.

Worth being slightly nervous about, of course, is that Daryl Richardson is still splitting carries with Jackson. But Richardson, who was great against the Dolphins, wasn't as strong against the Packers, carrying the ball six times for 27 yards. That's fine, but so long as Jackson is playing this well he doesn't have much to worry about.

At halftime the Rams again lead the Packers in total offense and time of possession, but they trail 10-6. Sam Bradford is 10-for-15 for 97 yards—Brandon Gibson is again the primary beneficiary of Danny Amendola's absence—and Greg Zuerlein has two field goals, of 43 and 50 yards, after suffering the first misses of his career last week.
