Packers running back Alex Green handled 20-plus carries for the third straight game but rushed for just 54 yards Sunday against Jacksonville.Fantasy Spin:James Starks only had one carry in the game but Green is going to have to improve if he wants to keep his job. In the last three games the running back only has 154 yards on 64 carries (2.4 ypc).
BEST OF MAXIM
Running back James Starks has only six carries in the past three games
While Alex Green has averaged a pathetic 2.4 yards per carry in the past three games, a now healthy James Starks has carried the ball a total of six times.

The Green Bay Packers will already be without several
high-profile players during today’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and

The beat-up Packers struggled on offense without receivers Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings. The defense, however, held firm in the second half.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was an ugly win for the Packers. Or, in Jermichael Finleys words, a real nasty win. It wasnt the type of game that the team will look back on with pride, but Green Bay (now 5-3) hit the midway point of its season with its third consecutive victory.

The Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the Green Bay Packers 24-15. The Jaguars went into the confines of Lambeau Field and emerged not victorious, but not demoralized either. The game still had its hero and zero. HeroDavon House and Dezmon Moses are the heroes of the game.
