Packers take lead after Lacy TD, surprise onside kick recovery

With Aaron Rodgers out, the Packers running game (yes, you read that correctly) is carrying the Green Bay offensive attack.

Trailing 17-10, Eddie Lacy broke free for a 56-yard gain down to the Chicago 1-yard line on the Packers first offensive snap of the third quarter. Lacy finished the deal on the next play to score the Packers’ second rushing touchdown of the night to tie the game. Lacy has been the star for the Packers with 135 yards on 13 carries on the night so far. James Starks also has six carries for 40 yards and a touchdown.

The Packers then pulled out a surprise onside kick to re-gain possession of the ball. Mason Crosby’s kick was lifted high into the air where Micah Hyde jarred the ball free from Blake Costanzo. Jamari Lattimore made his second major special teams contribution of the night for the Packers is recovering the loose ball. He also blocked a punt for the Packers in the first half.

Green Bay got lucky to be able to take the lead as a pass from Seneca Wallace went right through the hands of Bears’ linebacker James Anderson and into the waiting arms of James Jones deep in Bears’ territory. The Packers moved to the Bears 5-yard line but the drive stalled after two Wallace incompletions as Green Bay settled or a 23-yard field goal from Crosby to give them a 20-17 lead.

Packers guard T.J. Lang is also out for the remainder of the game with a concussion.

    Hey Vike fans, Seneca will be a fine fill-in, don’t worry about us. Worry about what lies your team is going to tell you to justify the garbage they trot out at QB.

    Rodgers wouldn’t be out for the season if Green Bay had Richie Incognito on their offensive line.

    Just saying…

    Dont know how this ends, but bear fans much quieter now than on the other 2 stories about the injury situation. Hmmmm.

    They have a good run blocking O line. Having Lacy doesn’t hurt either

    Both defenses stink against back up QB’s.

    Eddie Lacy throws grown men aside like so many potatoes.

    The Packers defense is allergic to tackling.

    No way I’d give Cutler a contract like were given to QBs this offseason. I like Cutler and all, but he’s not in the best QB conversation. I’d definitely have a hard limit on how much money I’d go and if they can’t find common ground I’d franchise tag and trade him.

    Hey Packer fans, you finally get to see how the other half lives. Fun isn’t it?

    Rodgers on the sideline in street clothes and not wearing a sling… looks like a sprain and not a broken collarbone…

    Looks like “the next man up” QB got lost and fell down.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Lacy is a total beast and a great draft addition to go along with Starks. And this is a Bear’s fan talking here.
