The Rams' Steven Jackson is on pace for 1,451 yards rushing and zero touchdowns.

The chart shows running backs since 1970 with the most rushing yards to open a regular season without scoring a touchdown.

Jackson needs 81 yards and no touchdowns to break the record Tiki Barber set in 2006.

Note: I should have specified that this was limited to only the first seven games of a season.
