The Packers went 44 consecutive games without a running back eclipsing 100 yards.
That ended, when Green Bay began giving the ball to No. 44.
With Eddie Lacy sustaining a concussion early in the game, the Packers let James Starks carry the load, especially late in the game when Green Bay got out to a big lead over Washington in its 38-21 win. Starks finished with 20 carries for 132 yards and a touchdown.
The Redskins' defense is one of the league's worst so expectations should be slightly tempered moving forward. It is also worth mentioning that quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a superb day, completing 34 of 42 passes for 480 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions.
