The Packers have lost that running feeling

The Green Bay Packers coming from a division that have two of the top rushers of all-time with Walter Payton and Barry Sanders would give a hint to Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy that they need to run the ball more with Cedric Benson, but apparently they didn’t get the hint passing 76% of the [...]
