Jackson, Givens Also Had Big Games for Rams
ST. LOUIS (AP)--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 draft pick, had five catches for 115 yards and a touchdown for his first career 100-yard game.

The Rams (4-6-1) had a season-best 173 yards rushing with a 5.1-yard average behind a line that had all of starters in place for the first time since the opener.

Jenkins' ball-hawking skills helped the Rams end a five-game turnover drought with an exclamation point, becoming the first rookie since 1960 and first St. Louis player to have two interceptions for touchdowns in one game.
