It took overtime but Atlanta was finally able to win their third game of the season, coming back from a 14-point deficit to defeat the Buffalo Bills 34-31 in Toronto, Canada. They now head to Green Bay to take on the Packers who are going through a five-game winless streak of their own.
The Green Bay Packers drafted Alabama running back Eddie Lacy in the second round of the draft in April to fix its problematic running game. The Packers have been in the top half of the NFL in rushing just once in Mike McCarthy’s seven years as head coach. Lacy, a big and powerful back, aims to fix that.
Dominated by linemen and defensive players, the draft lacked the name recognition and flair that skill position players bring. That doesn’t mean this year’s rookie quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, and tight ends won’t make an impact.
