Rams Must Protect The Franchise

The Rams have the daunting task of stopping or slowing down leading rusher Chris Johnson of the Tenneessee Titans on Sunday.  The task has become even more important since Johnson is chasing two records held by Rams.

Marshall Faulk holds the record for the most yards from scrimmage (both rushing and receiving) in a season with 2,429.  That record was set in 1999.

Eric Dickerson holds the record for most rushing yards in a season with 2,105.  That record was set in 1984.

Chris Johnson has 1,506 rushing yards so far this season with 4 games to go.  Johnson will have to average 150 rushing yards a game in his last 4 games to break the rushing record.  Johnson has 1831 total yards from scrimmage on the season.  He will have to average about 150 yards from scrimmage over the last 4 games to break the record.  So, if he breaks the rushing record, he will walk away with both records.

These records are Rams records and have stood for 10 and 25 years respectively.  The St. Louis Rams must defend their turf and protect the shield and keep the Ram records in the record books.

Do it for Faulk and Dickerson, men!
