(KSDK Sports) -- The Week 10 game was Rodger Saffold's first complete game since opening day and he held up very well against one of the game's premier pass rushers.
Actually, Saffold has been great since returning from injury, and now has the best PBE in the entire league among tackles that have played at least 100 snaps.
In 139 pass blocking snaps he has allowed just one sack and only two total pressures. To remain playing at that level he will need to contain Defensive Player of the Year candidate Aldon Smith.
Smith is one of the league's very best pass rushers with 49 pressures, including 17 sacks in 329 pass rushing opportunities, including a six-sack game. Smith has the ability to take over a game and Saffold must contain him.
But that is not Saffold's only job. Saffold is part of a line that must open up he holes for the Rams top offensive weapon, Steven Jackson. So what is that experience like? Click the video above to hear what Saffold has to say about playing in front of with Jackson.
