Packers fans last weekend saw something that has been pretty rare this season: A rushing touchdown!
Running back James Starks in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings scored on a 22-yard running play to put the Pack ahead for good in their 23-14 win over the Vikings. It was only the third rushing TD for the Packers this season.
With four games remaining in the 2012 regular season, the Packers offense has scored 30 touchdowns via passes and only three on the ground. If the season ended today, that would make the Packers the 20th team since the Super Bowl era (1966) to have 30 or more touchdowns on passes and less than 10 on running plays. (Note: The New Orleans Saints currently fit into this category with 31 passing TDs and nine rushing TDs.)
