A Minnesota Vikings stood in Eddie Lacy's way. Instead of running around him, Lacy ran right through him.

The former Alabama running back now in his second year with the Green Bay Packers trucked his way to a 29-yard gain in the first quarter of this week's Thursday Night Football game. The long run by Lacy set up quarterback Aaron Rodgers' 8-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb two plays later to make it 7-0.

Lacy rushed for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns this season but is off to a slow start in 2014 with only 161 yards and one touchdown through four games.

In three seasons at Alabama, Lacy rushed for 2,402 yards and 30 touchdowns on 355 carries, including 1,322 yards and 17 touchdowns in his junior -- and final -- season with the Crimson Tide in 2012.

Post-game update:

Lacy rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries and caught three passes for 27 yards in a 42-10 victory. It was the first 100-game on the ground for Lacy this season.

On one of Lacy's two touchdown runs, he bulldozed through the same Vikings player (safety Robert Blanton) again, refusing to go down.


After the game, Lacy Instagrammed a photo of his helmet-popping on Blanton and simply wrote "#Yep" in the description.
