Lacy tops 1,000 rushing yards again
With 99 yards and a touchdown Sunday, second-year running back Eddie Lacy became the first-ever Packers player with 1,000-plus rushing yards and 10-plus touchdowns from scrimmage in each of first two NFL seasons, according to the NFL.
Lacy (1,039 yards) is the fifth player in franchise history to have consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons (Ryan Grant, 2008-09; Ahman Green, 2000-04; John Brockington, 1971-73; Jim Taylor, 1960-64).
With 2,217 career rushing yards, he passed Brockington (2,132) for the most by a Packers running back in his first two NFL seasons.
- With his nine catches Sunday, Jordy Nelson has at least nine receptions in five games this season, most in a single season in franchise history. Nelson, who established a career high in receptions with 92, also is the fourth Packers player with at least 90 receptions in a regular season (Sterling Sharpe 1989, 1992-94; Robert Brooks 1995; Donald Driver 2006).
- Aaron Rodgers (4,155) crossed the 4,000-yard mark on the season, his fifth such season. That ties Brett Favre's team record.
