Eddie Lacy, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix: Green Bay defeats Chicago 31-23

Dennis Wierzbicki- USA TODAY Sports

Green Bay opened week one of the NFL season with a 31-23 victory over Chicago.

Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers was efficient, completing 18 of 23 (78.3 percent) pass attempts for 189 yards and three touchdowns, including two to wide receiver James Jones.

Former Alabama standouts Eddie Lacy and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix both had productive outings.

Lacy totaled 85 rushing yards, 14 receiving yards and a touchdown. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry and his two-yard touchdown run lengthened Green Bay’s lead to 31-16 in the fourth quarter. Clinton-Dix finished with seven total tackles, tying him for the team lead.

Green Bay will return home to Lambeau Field next week to host the Seattle Seahawks.
