(KSDK Sports) -- Running back Steven Jackson recorded his eighth consecutive 1,000-yard season on a 14-yard rush in the second quarter.

His string of eight seasons stands as the NFL's longest active streak of its kind. Jackson became the sixth running back in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in eight or more consecutive seasons, joining Emmitt Smith, Barry Sanders, Curtis Martin, Thurman Thomas and LaDainian Tomlinson.

Jackson finished the game with 11 rushes for 52 yards, a 4.7-yard average. With 10,135 career yards, Jackson remains the leading rusher among all active NFL running backs.
