The Green Bay Packers have been searching for a respectable rushing attack for the past few years and they finally had a breakthrough on Sunday afternoon against the Washington Redskins. After entering the game for an injured Eddie Lacy, who suffered a concussion, Starks managed to rush for more than 100 yards.
It was the first time since Week 5 of the 2010 season that a Packers running back had reached 100 yards.
That is a whopping 45 games.
The Packers have remained a top team in the NFL despite their lack of a balance offense, so they could be an even more dangerous team if they can get a consistent rusher in the backfield.
To be fair, the Redskins defense has been horrible for two straight weeks, so perhaps this is just speaking volumes about the work Washington needs to do.
Green Bay is currently blowing away the Redskins, so there could be a big opportunity for Starks to continue piling up the stats.
As an added bonus, Aaron Rodgers has thrown for a career high.
