IT’S NO SECRET that Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy struggles with his weight and has done for nearly his entire college and professional career.

Indeed, some NFL fans refer to Lacy as ‘Feastmode’, a play on Marshawn Lynch’s ‘Beastmode’ nickname.

However, prior to last night’s Green Bay/Washington NFC Wild Card game, ESPN ran a segment showing Lacy eating cartoon cheese on the field of play as former NFL wide receiver Cris Carter– the same guy who told NFL rookies they need to find a fall guy to go to jail for their crimes — joked about how the Packers back took the Green Bay ‘Cheesehead’ moniker a step too far.

Lacy had the last laugh however, scoring a crucial touchdown and running for 5.2 yards per carry, his second best performance of the entire season.

It included this big run to set up the Packers for the go-ahead score:
