St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley went over 100 rushing yards for the third straight game during Sunday's matchup against the Cleveland Browns.

Gurley, who scored his first touchdown with a 1-yard run late in the third quarter, has eclipsed 100 yards in each of his three career starts after rushing for only nine yards on six carries during his Week 3 NFL debut.

Gurley ripped off a 48-yard run on the Rams' first possession of the third quarter and reached the 100-yard mark in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, becoming the first Rams rookie with three straight 100-yard games since Eric Dickerson.

Prior to last weekend's bye, Gurley rumbled for 159 yards in a Week 5 loss at Green Bay to follow up a 146-yard effort at Arizona one week earlier in his first career start. His 305 yards and 49 carries in those two games led the league in both categories.

Gurley was held out of preseason and the first two games while recovering from an ACL tear sustained last November that ended his college career at Georgia.
