GREEN BAY, Wis. -

Even the Green Bay Packers recognize their running game is sluggish.

It's not that they don't want to run. The Packers are doggedly clinging to the idea of a balanced offense, handing it off about 25 times per game.

They just don't have much, if anything, to show for it.

The Packers (5-3) are averaging a measly 3.7 yards per carry, with only Dallas, Arizona and New Orleans worse in the NFC. Their two rushing touchdowns are tied for fewest in the NFL. Not only have they not had a 100-yard rusher in, well, pretty much forever, the entire team hasn't cracked the century mark in almost a month.
