Stat Line Of The Night — 10/30/11 — Steven Jackson
Most NFL experts didn’t give the previously winless St. Louis Rams much of a chance against the New Orleans Saints, but what they failed to realize is that when you have a running back like Steven Jackson carrying the ball for you, anything is possible. Jackson proved just that yesterday afternoon.
The presence of the World Series Champions St. Louis Cardinals seemed to provide him with quite the inspiration, as he recorded 159 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries and added another four receptions for 32 yards threw the air. Jackson’s bruising ground-attack allowed the Rams to control the clock and keep Drew Brees on the sidelines throughout much of the game. The end result would be a 31-21 Rams win, as Jackson earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, October 30, 2011.
