This Sunday’s NFL Game of the Week on FOX will feature one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports as the Green Bay Packers travel to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bears. Did you know it was for the NFC North division championship?
The stakes couldn’t be any higher, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who thought the final match up between these two teams would determine ones playoff hopes. If you haven’t noticed from the picture below the article, I’m a Chicago Bears fan.
As a Bears fan, I have had no choice but to respect the Green Bay Packers. If you’re a fan of either team or understand the history behind the rivalry, then you know why.
Anyways, running back Eddie Lacy has had himself an amazing rookie season. He’s made a huge case for himself when it comes to Rookie of the Year honors and I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes home with the award. He’s been on a little bit off a snap count limit for awhile and has missed some practices in between.
Lacy has been dealing with a little bit of an ankle problem and has missed some practice this week. After missing a couple days he finally returned to the practice field but wasn’t doing much during the open portion according to Rob Demovsky on Twitter.
Eddie Lacy returned to the practice field on Friday but didn’t appear to do much during the open portion.

Even if Lacy isn’t able to suit on Sunday, this Packers team won’t have a problem running against this terrible rush defense of Chicago.
