GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Josh Sitton isn't quite sure why, but the Green Bay Packers guard believes he's a better run blocker now that he's playing on the left side of the offensive line.

And the Packers are taking advantage of it.

Their renewed commitment to the run game has paid dividends, perhaps sooner than anyone expected this season. Heading into Week 6, the Packers ranked fifth in the NFL in rushing yards per game (141.0) and second in rushing average (5.3 yards per carry).

It might not be that Sitton better, but that some of the best run stoppers are lined up more towards the RG side (just a guess) that or EDS is playing much better which is very possible as well.

We still aren't running the ball like when Ahman Green was in beast mode, but the run game is improving. Our offense hasn't even clicked yet. We have better things to look forward too.

They have actually run better on a play to play basis to the right but they have the 2 long runs to the left
