Green Bay Packers
X-Factor: Eddie Lacy
If Aaron Rodgers is as hurt as the Packers say he is, and it sure looked like it against Dallas, then Green Bay desperately needs Eddie Lacy to ignite their running game and offense.
Although Lacy is banged up and dealing with a sore knee, he is going to play on Sunday and should have a chance to exploit Seattle’s front-seven and keep Seattle’s league-best Safety duo, Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas, focused on stopping the run and not focused on stopping Rodgers.
Lacy totaled 1,139 rushing yards and nine touchdowns during the regular season, and he rushed for 101 yards on 19 carries against the Cowboys last week.
The Seahawks defense allowed more than 100 rushing yards in all four losses this season.
If the Packers can run the ball effectively and surpass 100 rushing yards in the game, they’re going to have a chance to win the game.
