ST. LOUIS - Rams coach Jeff Fisher admitted after their 27-13 loss to the New York Jets last week that he probably should have given running back Steven Jackson more carries.
He didnt let the same mistake happen twice.
Jackson had a season-high 139 rushing yards on 24 carries to help lead the Rams to a 31-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals on the road Sunday. It was his second-most carries of the year, behind only his 29 attempts in a 24-24 tie in San Francisco three weeks ago.
Weeks after reports surfaced that the Rams were receiving trade inquiries on the former Pro Bowler, Jackson looked every bit like the productive runner hes been during his now nine-year NFL career.
I think what we saw out of Jack yesterday is what were going to see the rest of the year, Fisher said Monday. It was a pretty impressive effort yesterday. It was fun to watch from the sideline.
The longest-tenured Ram had a season long 46-yard scamper to help set up the Rams go-ahead score on their first posse...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jeff Fisher expressed nothing but confidence when the St. Louis Rams drafted Janoris Jenkins and since the rookie made history he looks like a genius.

The five-game winless streak is over for the St. Louis Rams, and not just because of rookie Janoris Jenkins' historic day. Steven Jackson and rookie Chris Givens had big days on offense, too.
The bruising Jackson had a season-best 139 yards rushing, putting him in easy range of an eighth straight 1,000-yard season, which would extend his franchise record. Givens, a fourth-round...
ST. LOUIS (AP) Danny Amendola was pretty much a decoy last week, limited by a heel injury. The St. Louis Rams leading wide receiver was back in a walking boot Wednesday and watching at practice.
Amendola, who has 51 catches and an 11.3-yard average, was optimistic about playing Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. He was on the field for just seven snaps in last week's victory...
St. Louis' long takeaway drought ended spectacularly in the desert.
For five games, the Rams failed to force a single opponent turnover. Then on Sunday, they intercepted rookie Ryan Lindley four times in his first NFL start. Janoris Jenkins took two of them back for touchdowns in St. Louis' 31-17 victory over Arizona, the Cardinals' seventh loss in a row.
I'll be honest, I didn't expect to be writing this article. Not after Rodger Saffold's rookie promise evaporated in an all-around-awful 2011 season. Not after Saffold worked his way back to the starting lineup, only to be laid out flat on a stretcher in the first quarter of his first home game back.
Nope, I was, rather petulantly and rather foolishly, willing to write...
As I woke up this morning, I entered the Rams’ Twitter contest to win a signed Dick Vermeil mini-helmet, a totem embodying memories of the greatest era in St. Louis Rams history.
The question to qualify for the prize was even based on the Rams’ meteoric rise under Vermeil, asking for the disparity in the team’s record from 1998 to 1999. For the record, it went from 4-12...

The Cardinals’ 2012 campaign fell to a new low on Sunday following a seventh consecutive loss at the hands of the St. Louis Rams.
