"I know that when you go through a lot of things, He takes things away from you.."
In a season plagued by injury and team violations for Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy, Sunday evening proved to be a night of redemption for the star runner.
Lacy, who carried the ball for 124 yards and one touchdown, attributed his on-field success to God in a post-game interview.
"Honestly, just getting right with the 'Big Man Upstairs,'" Lacy told a reporter after the game when asked about his "reboot."
"I know that when you go through a lot of things, He takes things away from you to show you how life is without it," he continued. "I want to thank Coach [McCarthy] too, for taking it away from me, so I could go through that, and know that that is not where I want to be, and then giving me another chance to redeem myself."
Lacy's "reboot" performance against the ailing Dallas Cowboys helped springboard the Packers to their ninth of the season. The team now has a one-win lead over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North.
The Packers are set to take on the Oakland Raiders (6-7) next week in Oakland.
