James Starks has first 100-yard rushing day for Packers since 2010
It's been three seasons since Green Bay had a 100-yard rusher. James Stark took care of that Sunday.
Not that the Packers needed too much help against a Redskins defense that played putridly for the second-straight week, but running back James Stark’s 100-yard rushing day is the first time a Green Bay running back has rushed for triple digits in three years.
That’s when Brandon Jackson rushed for 115 yards on 10 carries on Oct. 10, 2010. Only a scant 45 games (and a Super Bowl title) later, the Packers are back in the land of 100-yard runners.
Life for Green Bay’s offense couldn’t have gone much better.
The Packers jumped out to a 31-0 lead, and though Eddie Lacy suffered a concussion after Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather smacked him in the head on the first series, Starks picked up the slack, accumulating 132 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries for the day.
Starks’ previous career high was 85 yards on nine carries on Sept. 18, 2011.
