EDDIE LACY, GREEN BAY PACKERS RB
Eddie Lacy began his NFL career as a training camp punchline after being photographed from an unfortunate angle during positional drills. But once the dust settled, he was the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year after rushing for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns. Five of those touchdowns came in the season’s last four games as the Packers fought their way to an NFC North title.

LACY IN MADDEN NFL 25 (86 OVR, 95 TRK, 97 SPM, 96 CAR)
Lacy has solid speed and is capable of running over defenders with his 95 Trucking rating. While many consider Lacy a power back, his ability to pull off great spin moves with the Precision Modifier in Madden NFL 25 adds a second weapon to his arsenal. Lacy earned the trust of the fans in Green Bay and with a 96 Carry rating, he should earn your trust in late-game situations to seal victories.

KEY PLAY: SINGLEBACK ACE TWINS – HB STRETCH
Use this unbalanced formation to clear a path to the edge. Don’t forget that you can spin back inside if the edge isn’t open, or simply lean the right stick forward to clear a path.

Pro Tip: If the defense takes the edge away, the run audible is a HB Dive where Lacy can put his head down and move the chains.
