Shut down Lacy the same way they do Marshawn Lynch

Eddie Lacy, James Starks, Marshawn Lynch. These running backs have all similar styles of running. They are big, powerful backs who can run through defenders. The Rams always play these types of running backs very well, as proven with Marshawn Lynch, who they always hold under 100 yards. Since Eddie Lacy and James Starks are the two backs for the Packers, it brings good news for Rams fans, as they can likely handle these types of running backs. The Rams hardly ever get ran over by anyone, which is why this tough defense needs to hold the number three rushing offense as much as they can. If the Rams can eliminate the run game early, Rodgers will be forced to win the game by himself. (which he’s very good at)
