We've reached the quarter point of the NFL season. Each NFC North team has played four of its 16 games, and here is one development none of us would have predicted when training camp began: Cedric Benson is the Green Bay Packers' unquestioned starting running back. Benson has taken 184 of the 186 snaps that have gone to a Packers tailback this season, according to Pro Football Focus. (Alex Green has taken the other two.) Former starter James Starks has recovered from the turf toe injury he suffered in the first week of the preseason, but he was essentially a healthy scratch from Sunday's 28-27 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
