Packers Lacy to get 20-25 carries today

According to a tweet sent out earlier by the NFL Network, the Packers are planning to give rookie RB Eddie Lacy 20-25 carries today. Lacy really struggled last week against the 49ers, running for just 41 yards despite getting 14 carries. Now I have no idea how good Washington's defense is, but since they lost to the Eagles last week, I'm assuming this is a smart move. 

And if Lacy does play bad today, it probably won't matter. In the end, the passing game will help the Packers prevail. It'd be nice to see Lacy make some improvements, but I just don't see it happening. I see at least 15 of those carries getting stopped at the line of scrimmage. But I could be wrong.
