TAMPA, Fla. -- Steven Jackson became the Rams' all-time leading rusher Sunday during an 18-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that left the seventh-year pro with mixed emotions about the accomplishment.

It's bittersweet," Jackson said after St. Louis blew a 14-point lead. "It's something that I've worked really hard for -- a goal that I actually set coming in as a rookie in 2004. So to achieve it, it means a lot. I just really wish that we were able to cap it off with a win."
Jackson had his third consecutive 100-yard game, finishing with 110 yards on 22 carries.
He moved ahead of Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson on a 3-yard carry to midfield early in the second quarter. Dickerson gained 7,245 yards for the Rams from 1983-87. Jackson stands at 7,324.
Last week, Jackson joined Dickerson and Marshall Faulk as the only players with at least 25 100-yard rushing performances for the Rams.
"I'm proud of him," Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said. "I'm sure he's not feeling great about it right now, but he should be."
