James Starks exceeds 100 yards rushing for Packers

Aaron Rodgers, James Starks AP

The Packers are in range of having a player exceed 100 yards rushing in a regular-season game for the first time in almost three years.

It took only 13 carries and less than three quarters for Green Bay’s James Starks to break the 100-yard barrier on Sunday against Washington. He eclipsed 100 yards on a 32-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter to give Green Bay a 38-7 lead in a game it has controlled since early in the contest.

Starks has received the work in the Green Bay backfield since Eddie Lacy departed with a concussion suffered in the first quarter.

SInce Washington-Green Bay isn’t quite in the books, Starks’ 100-yard day isn’t yet official. But it appears he will break a streak of 44 regular-season games for Green Bay without a 100-yard rusher.

Brandon Jackson was the last Packers back to rush for 100 yards or more in a regular-season game, racking up 115 yards on 10 carries at Washington on October 10, 2010.

    If it wasn’t for garbage time the Redskins might have 14 points on the season

    3 years? I knew they were one dimensional but that is one hell of a dimension. Rodgers probably took MVP lead this week if Peyton doesn’t do something special.

    Starks got his 100 yards only because of the dirty Redskins play helmet boinking Lacy.

    Wow just goes to show how great organizations are run: in one year the Pack went from having no running game to having two studs that can run the ball! Go Pack Go!!!!

    Cheap shot launching helmet to helmet knocked Lacy out.

    Dude should have been ejected.

    Slow your roll, bud. So far the Redskins have the worst rush d in the league. Lets see what happens next week against Cincy.

    I could run for 1oo against that defense and I am 73 years old

    Not bad for a guy that no one thought would make the roster this year.

    Hopefully he can keep it up and become consistent this year.

    themostlogicalofvoices,

    You mean the same Bengals that lost to the Bears? I don’t think you will find a person that isn’t a Bears fan that believes the Bears offense is better than the Packers.

    the packers are weak and the Bengals will play them alot better next week. packers fans be afraid of 1-2 record

    Somewhere logicalvoicesays is crying in his Redskins jam-jams.

  13. blackhawks2010 says: Sep 15, 2013 5:05 PM

    Wow, the Redskins are awful.

  14. gbjames911 says: Sep 15, 2013 6:12 PM

    chi01town,
    Man you Bears fans are pretty forgetful. If I remember right, the Bears started off pretty well last year and then reality hit. You squeaked by two weeks in a row. Try that against a good team. At this rate, better hope the Packers are nice enough to pull up on the scoring when their up by 20.

    The Bears still suck!! Go Pack Go!!

  16. jimmysee says: Sep 16, 2013 7:16 AM

    I worked for a summer in Chicago and love the Bears (when they are not playing the Packers).

    But come on! The Packers aren’t weak.
