The Green Bay Packers are in a must win situation against the Pittsburgh Steelers if they have any hopes of staying alive in the NFC North.
With Detroit and Chicago dropping games over the last couple of weeks, Matt Flynn and the Packers managed to stay in the race without Aaron Rodgers.
A big part of Green Bay staying alive in the hunt is rookie running back Eddie Lacy. Lacy is Green Bay’s first 1,000 yard rusher in four or five years with the last one being Ryan Grant. Eddie has nine carries for 68 rushing yards and a touchdown in the first half of this game.
All this team needs to do is win this game and hope that Rodgers can be cleared to play against the Chicago Bears in Week 17. A game that will decide who will walk away as the NFC North Champions.
Both teams need to either win the division or they’ll end up going home. Both Wild Card spots will be picked up by either the San Francisco 49ers and or the New Orleans Saints/Carolina Panthers.
Lacy’s touchdown was a 14 yard run that featured a beautiful double twist as he jumped into the end zone.
He didn’t stick the landing tho.
