3.) Can Eddie Lacy keep rolling?

If Jarrett Boykin doesn’t get called for holding late in the fourth quarter, Packers’ running back Eddie Lacy would’ve secured his first-career 100-yard rushing game in the NFL. Instead, he totaled 99 yards on 23 carries in a very impressive first start since suffering the concussion in week two.

The power and speed Lacy demonstrates is a delightful sight for the Packers who haven’t had a future running back since the days of Ahman Green.

The Ravens have struggled on defense early in the season, but they remain very talented on the defensive side of the ball. The Packers should be able to run the ball with some success against the Ravens after dealing with a superior Lions’ defensive front last Sunday.

The Ravens defense will be very good by the end of the season. However, this week the edge goes to the Packers’ offense in this particular matchup.
