Packers keeping Browns at bay


With sound offense and strong defense, the Packers have methodically pushed their way to a 17-3 third-quarter lead against Cleveland at Lambeau Field.

The Packers have again had solid balance on offense, with Eddie Lacy rushing for a touchdown and quarterback Aaron Rodgers throwing a TD pass to tight end Jermichael Finley. The Packers are playing without receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones, but the passing game has fared well, with Rodgers showing ideal accuracy and prudence thus far.

The Browns’ offense, by contrast, has not gotten much going. Quarterback Brandon Weeden completed just 5-of-14 passes for 48 yards in the first half, and he was intercepted once.
