ST. LOUIS (AP) -Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce passed James Lofton for third place on the career yards receiving list in the second quarter of Thursday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Bruce was 1 yard behind Lofton after catching a 12-yard touchdown pass from Marc Bulger earlier in the quarter to put the Rams ahead 14-10. He passed him on an 8-yard reception to the St. Louis 26 with 9:27 to go in the half and St. Louis trailing 17-14.
Bruce knew he had a milestone, lugging the ball as he ran off the field to cheers. Bruce had three receptions for 29 yards to give him 14,012 yards, 8 more than Lofton.
Bruce passed Marvin Harrison to move into fourth place last week.
Bulger had two touchdown passes, giving him 104 and moving past Kurt Warner for fourth on the franchise career list. Warner, a two-time NFL MVP who led the Rams to two Super Bowls in three seasons, had 102 touchdown passes.
