Lacy looks for better performance against 49ers


Eddie Lacy is hoping that his second meeting against the 49ers goes much better than the first.

The running back played his first ever NFL regular season game against San Francisco in the Packers opener.

Lacy ran 41 yards and had one touchdown in that season-opening loss on the road.

Since then he's become one of, if not, the face of the Packers run game. And despite his injured ankle, Mike McCarthy says Lacy has evolved from his NFL debut.

"Well that was Eddie's first game. he admittedly was very nervous before the game," McCarthy said. "He's like any rookie in this league. He's got 16 games under his belt now so he knows what to expect and he's comfortable. The offense is comfortable being asked what to do."

Eddie Lacy scored two touchdowns in his last game at Lambeau against the Steelers. In Week 17, the rookie ran 66 yards with one touchdown.
