Tom Lynn /Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) -- Eddie Lacy compiled 138 yards of offense and two touchdowns to help the Green Bay Packers edge the Minnesota Vikings 24-21 Sunday.
The win, coupled with the Lions' loss to the Patriots, puts the Packers (8-3) in sole possession of first place in the NFC North.
Lacy ran for 125 yards on 25 carries in the win.
"He's agile for a guy his size," Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said of Lacy. "He's got a great spin move. He takes care of the football. He does all the things you want."
Rodgers didn't fair too poorly himself. The former league MVP completed 19 of 29 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns.
The Vikings (4-7) made a game of it late in the fourth quarter. With 3:23 left to play, Teddy Bridgewater threw a five-yard strike to Greg Jennings in the end zone to put Minnesota down by three, but Lacy ran the ball five straight times to kill the clock and secure the Packers a win.
Next up for the Packers is a visit by the New England Patriots (9-2) next weekend. Meanwhile, the Vikings will host the Carolina Panthers (3-7-1).
