Steven Jackson has three games with 100 yards rushing and is among the NFL leaders, despite missing most of three games with injuries.
In St. Louis' 13-12 win at Cleveland on Sunday, Jackson rushed 27 times for 128 yards. It was the 30th 100-yard game of his career, which trails only Eric Dickerson (38) in team history. Jackson's performance marked the fourth time in his...
RENTON -- The play was worthy of the highlight reels, but it left quarterback Tarvaris Jackson reeling.
In the second quarter of Sunday's 22-17 win against Baltimore, the Seahawks quarterback took the snap, rolled to his left and fired a pinpoint pass across his body to receiver Doug Baldwin down field for a 50-yard gain.
Coach Pete Carroll called the throw "phenomenal"...

The St. Louis Rams are on a roll all of a sudden, winning two of their last three games while outscoring their opponents 57-52. The Seahawks won last weekend 22-17 over the Ravens in Seattle, so they could be in for a letdown. The Seahawks are 1-4 on the road this year, where they have been outscored 111-69. Here is a look at the matchups in this game:

Quarterback Charlie Whitehurst took all the pass plays in practice Friday as starter Tarvaris Jackson rested his injured pectoral muscle. It follows the pattern of work Jackson has undergone since coming back from the injury sustained in the NY Giants win. “Tarvaris did very well in practice yesterday and couldn’t throw today,” coach Pete Carroll said. “He did a little bit...
