    Sando: Gridiron Challenge: Steven Jackson's Time?

    Gridiron Challenge: Steven Jackson's time?

    Dec 3111:27AM ET
    By Mike Sando

    A question for fantasy players and football fans alike: With all eyes on Sam Bradford, might Steven Jackson carry the St. Louis Rams to their first playoff appearance since the 2004 season?

    I couldn't think of a more appropriate storyline for Rams victory Sunday.

    Jackson has given more than anyone on the Rams' roster during the team's historically lean years. While he should seemingly play a prominent role in any meaningful success the team enjoys, Jackson's production has been heading in the wrong direction recently. His rushing yardage totals have fallen from 102 against Arizona in Week 13 to 96 against New Orleans, 67 against Kansas City and 48 against San Francisco.

    Jackson did run effectively against the Saints, averaging 6.0 yards per carry. That was the only time in his last five games that Jackson exceeded even 3.5 yards per carry, however. He has never reached 100 yards rushing in a game against Seattle. Jackson does have seven career touchdowns against the Seahawks, more than he has scored against any other opponent. He has averaged 4.0 yards per carry against Seattle.

    Jackson has never faced this particular version of Seattle's defense. Red Bryant, now on injured reserve, was clogging running lanes for the Seahawks when the teams played at the Edward Jones Dome in Week 4. Jackson carried 22 times for 70 yards and added a 49-yard reception in that game even though a groin injury prevented him from practicing much that week. Jackson wore an elaborate brace on his thigh, preventing him from taking full strides.

    Surprising that Jackson has never rushed for 100 yards against Seattle and it would great to see him do it, but I'll take the TD trend all day.
