Rams 20, Seahawks 3

Gimpy Jackson responds for Rams

ST. LOUIS — Steven Jackson was a question mark until the first snap.

But there was no way he was going to miss this one for the Rams. And he showed the Seahawks he could play hurt and still make a big impact.

"I knew I wouldn't be 100 percent, but I knew I had enough to give," said Jackson, who blocked out a strained groin. "I feel like the team is going in the right direction and I wanted to be a part of it."

The two-time Pro Bowl pick had 126 yards rushing and receiving, complementing another strong game by Sam Bradford and a stout defense as the Rams rolled. St. Louis has consecutive wins for the first time in two seasons.

Jackson had 70 yards on 22 carries to pass Marshall Faulk for No. 2 on the Rams' rushing list. With 6,991 yards in seven seasons he trails Eric Dickerson, who had 7,245 yards from 1983-87.

The Rams ended a 10-game losing streak against Seattle and topped their win total from last year.
