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.
