For the third consecutive game, RB Marshall Faulk had a season-high in total yards from scrimmage while becoming just the fourth player in NFL history to rush for at least 150 yards in three consecutive games last week at Arizona. Faulk rushed 27 times for 178 yards and one touchdown, and caught five passes for 58 yards, totaling 32 touches for a season-high 236 yards and one touchdown as the Rams won their third straight game. Faulk became the 12th player in NFL history to gain at least 16,000 all-purpose yards and the seventh player in league history to score at least 120 touchdowns in the contest as he registered his 33rd career 100-yard rushing game, his 19th as a Ram, and third this season. It is the third time in his career (all with the Rams) Faulk has posted at least three consecutive 100-yard rushing games. Faulk joined Hall of Famers Jim Brown, O.J. Simpson, and Earl Campbell as the only players in NFL history with at least three consecutive 150-yard rushing games in a season (Campbell had four straight 150+ rushing games in 1980).
Faulk posted three straight 100-yard rushing games in Games 14-16 of 2001; 202 @ Carolina, 118 vs. Indianapolis, 168 vs. Atlanta. In 1999, Faulk registered a career-best four straight 100-yard rushing games in games 10-13; 126 @ San Francisco, 102 vs. New Orleans, 118 @ Carolina, 154 @ New Orleans). Faulk had nine runs of at least 10 yards against Arizona, tying his best as a Ram (nine 10+ runs @ New Orleans 12/24/00). Faulk s 27 rushes tied for the sixth-highest total of his career, while his 178 rushing yards is his second-highest of the season and eighth highest of his career. The rushing touchdown was his 45th as a Ram, moving him to second on the team s career list of rushing touchdowns, surpassing Dan Towler. Faulk s 236 total yards is a season high, the sixth-highest total of his career, the 14th career 200-yard game, his 10th as a Ram, and second straight 200-yard game, following his 235-yard effort against Seattle. It is the second time in Faulk s Hall of Fame career he s had consecutive 200-yard games. (In 1999, Faulk had consecutive 200-yard games @ Atlanta 10/17 {213 yards} and vs. Cleveland 10/24 {200 yards}).

Faulk s four-yard catch on the first play of the fourth quarter was his 600th career reception, while his 12-yard run in the third quarter moved him past the 16,000 all-purpose yards mark for his career. Faulk s nine-yard run on the Rams first play of the fourth quarter moved him past the century mark in rushing yards, and his six-yard run midway through the fourth quarter moved him past the 200-yard mark for the game. Faulk earned his third career save in the fourth quarter, rushing 14 times for 80 yards in the final period. Faulk touched the ball on 14 of the Rams 21 plays in the last 15 minutes, rushing six times for 36 yards on the Rams scoring drive that ended with K Jeff Wilkins 42-yard field goal to extend the lead to 20-14. On the next possession, it was all Faulk, who gained all 30 yards on five running plays. Faulk s electrifying, 13-yard cutback touchdown run with 1:53 to play sealed the victory. Faulk earned two saves in 2001, helping the Rams run out the clock at San Francisco Sept. 26 (7-48 rushing, 2-20 receiving on the final drive, elapsing the final 6:35 in a 30-26 win), and at New England Nov. 18 (6-33 rushing, 2-20 receiving, helping elapse the final 7:46 off the clock in a 24-17 win).

The Rams are now 19-0 when Faulk gains at least 100 rushing yards. It was also the 27th time as a Ram that Faulk has gained at least 150 yards. St. Louis is 26-1 and has won 24 straight games when Faulk gains at least 150 yards.

Faulk, the NFL s Most Valuable Player in 2000, and the offensive player of the year each of the past three seasons, has gained at least 2,000 yards from scrimmage each of the past four seasons (an NFL record). Faulk has scored more points (288) in the past two seasons than any player in the NFL, and has scored more touchdowns over the past two (47), three (59), and four (69) seasons than any player in the NFL, and is third in rushing yards (2,741) since 2000 and 1999 (4,122), and second in rushing yards over the past four seasons (5,441).

TEMPE, AZ The Rams improved their record to 3-5 on the season after a 27-14 win over the Arizona Cardinals at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.

It is the third consecutive victory for the Rams and their first win over the Cardinals in the regular season since moving to St. Louis in 1995.

Rams RB Marshall Faulk gained 178 yards on 26 carries and scored one touchdown and made five receptions for 58 yards in the contest. It was Faulk s 33rd career 100-yard rushing game, 19th as a Ram and third consecutive contest with 100-rushing yards.

Marshall just continues his track to greatness, Rams head coach Mike Martz said after the game. Marshall was sick coming into this game. He had the flu for three days. He took medication last night in the hotel to try to get him feeling good. He cramped up pretty good out there today. He wasn t quite 100 percent, but nobody would know that.

I was a little under the weather during the week, Faulk said. I had a slight fever throughout the week and with that you get a little dehydrated. I just started to feel better and I got out there today and I started cramping up. You can t control that, you either just have to play through it or succumb to it.

He was playing great and sucking it up out there, Rams QB Marc Bulger said. He was cramping up, and I saw the look on his face and I didn t think he was going to make it. He showed something out there today. He was out there, he knew how important it was and he got it done.

It was the 14th time in his career that Faulk gained 200 total yards, 10th time with the Rams.

QB Marc Bulger completed 20 of 29 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. Bulger is now 3-0 as a starter in his first three NFL games.

It feels the same, Bulger said of earning his first win on the road. Home or away, they are all the same to me. I am glad we held on at the end. This is the biggest win I have had so far in three games.

WR Tory Edwards made his first four receptions as a Ram and was the team s leader in terms of receiving yards, making four catches for 63 yards, including a long of 48 which set up a Rams touchdown.

The Rams got on the board with 11:18 left in the first quarter as Bulger and Faulk helped lead them to a 7-0 lead. Bulger completed three of four passes for 68 yards, including a 31-yard scoring strike to WR Ricky Proehl. Faulk rushed twice for seven yards and made two catches for 37 yards.

The Rams jumped out to a 10-0 lead with 13:09 left in the second quarter when Wilkins kicked a 24-yard field goal.

Cardinals QB Jake Plummer completed an eight-yard pass to WR Frank Sanders with 2:31 to go in the first half to cut the Rams lead to 10-7 following an eight-play, 69-yard drive.

The Rams extended their lead to 17-7 moments later when Bulger completed his second touchdown pass of the day to WR Torry Holt, a seven-yard pass, with 53 seconds left in the first half. The Rams moved the ball 82 yards in seven plays and took 1:38 off of the clock.

With 10:36 left in the fourth quarter Arizona CB David Barrett picked off Bulger s pass at the Cardinals 38-yard line and then lateraled to S Justin Lucas, who ran 35 yards for the score to cut the Rams lead to 17-14.

Wilkins kicked his second field goal of the day, from 42 yards, to extend the Rams lead to 20-14 with 3:46 left in the contest.

Faulk extended the Rams lead to 27-14 with 1:53 left in the game after a 13-yard scoring run.
