Week 12: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Back in Week 5, the Packers got on a roll that continues to this day by blowing out the Vikings 42-10. Eddie Lacy sealed the win with two third-quarter TD runs (11- and 10-yard scores) to finish the game at 13/105/2 rushing with 3/27/0 receiving (the backups took the game to the finish line that day, playing much of the fourth quarter, so James Starks posted 13/46/0 rushing and 2/2/0 receiving for the club on October 2). Last week, Lacy had another multi-TD game with 10/69/1 rushing and 3/45/1 receiving to his credit, while Starks handled 8/9/0 rushing and 2/17/0 receiving in relief of Lacy during the 53-20 destruction of the Eagles. The Packers' entire offense is on a roll entering Week 12. The Vikings' rush D is ranked 21st in the NFL averaging 115.3 yards given up per game, with eight rushing scores handed out so far. They gave up 31/138/0 to Chicago last week, after allowing 29/122/2 to the Vikings two games ago. Not too good, friends. This is a great matchup for the streaking Lacy.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs CHI (5 / 10 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Starks didn't see much work, as the team didn't sub him in much for Eddie Lacy and gave the late-blowout workload to DuJuan Harris. His overall effectiveness was a mixed bag, as he was able to find a hole and get through it for a 6-yard gain in the third quarter, but got tripped up in the backfield when he tried to turn the corner in the second quarter. Overall, he wasn't asked to do much and had a limited impact.

2014 Week 11 vs PHI (8 / 9 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Starks saw all of his work in the second half when the team was way ahead of the Eagles and the offense was winding down. His carries were a bit of a mixed bag of mostly off-tackle runs some of which exposed him to a multitude of tacklers before he hit the line of scrimmage. Overall though, he ran well, breaking some tackles and showing good speed against an admittedly gassed defense.
