POLL: Will Todd Gurley rush for 125+ yards for a 5th consecutive game?

So far in his young career, St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley has either rushed for more than 125 yards or less than 10 yards in every game.

After his modest nine-yard NFL debut, Gurley has been dominant.

Including 133 rushing yards and a touchdown against the 49ers last week, Gurley has rushed for more than 125 yards in four consecutive games. During that four-game span, Gurley has racked up 566 rushing yards (6.43 yards per carry) and three touchdowns with nine catches for 63 yards.

The only other active running backs that have ever had a streak of at least four 125-yard rushing games are Chris Johnson (six, 2009) and Frank Gore (four, 2011). Along with Johnson, Eric Dickerson and Earl Campbell both have six-game streaks with 125-plus rushing yards.

Only two other players -- Adrian Peterson and Chris Ivory (both two games) -- have rushed for 125-yards in consecutive games this season.

Gurley and the Rams will face the Vikings in Week 9. Only two running backs have gained more than 51 rushing yards against the Vikings this season -- Carlos Hyde (168, Week 1) and Ronnie Hillman (103, Week 4).

Will Gurley rush for 125-plus yards for a fifth consecutive game in Week 9?
