Eddie Lacy Could Have Something In Common With Curtis Martin After Steelers Game


Green Bay Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy enters the Sunday game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with 1,028 yard rushing on 248 carries. Against the Steelers he will look to do something that no other rookie running back has done since 1995.

According to ESPN Stats and Information, Lacy, who has four 100-yard rushing performances on the season, will look to become the first rookie running back to hit the century mark against the Steelers since Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin last did it as a member of the New England Patriots in Week 16 of the 1995 season.

In that December game, Martin, a University of Pittsburgh product, had 120 yards on 20 carries. The Steelers, however, won the game 41-27 at Three Rivers Stadium.

Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell has yet to run for 100-yards in a game as a professional and should he register his first Sunday at Lambeau Field, he will end the team’s 22 game steak without one. That streak is currently the longest in the NFL.

Both of these teams will likely want to run the ball a lot in this game due to the snowy conditions, so maybe one of these two streaks comes to an end.

    Lacy will not get his 100

    Neither will Bell…

  • Kevin Gobleck

    I have a feeling that Bell will finally get his 100 yrd rushing game today

    It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were setting records for consecutive games with a 100 yard rusher.
