Recap


Packers 31, Browns 13: Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes and Green Bay held off Cleveland for its 11th consecutive win at home.

Rodgers finished 25-for-36 for 260 yards, including a 10-yard hookup to tight end Jermichael Finley on the Packers' first possession, and Green Bay (4-2) never trailed. A short scoring pass to Jordy Nelson in the fourth quarter put the game out of reach before Rodgers capped the scoring by hitting Jarrett Boykin for a 20-yard touchdown.

Playing without two of their top receivers, Randall Cobb and James Jones, the Packers leaned a bit more on their running game and rookie Eddie Lacy responded with a first-quarter touchdown run from a yard out. Lacy finished with 82 yards on 22 carries and Boykin had eight catches for 103 yards.

Cleveland (3-4) managed only 89 yards of offense and trailed 17-3 at the half as quarterback Brandon Weeden started slowly, completing just five passes before the break, and finished 17-for-42 for 149 yards. Willis McGahee led the running game with a paltry 39 yards on 11 carries.

Trailing 24-6 in the fourth quarter, an 86-yard kickoff return by Travis Benjamin set up Cleveland's only touchdown as Jordan Cameron scored for the sixth time this season on a 2-yard pass from Weeden. 

GAME NOTEBOOK: Finley was injured in the fourth quarter after taking a blow to the helmet from Cleveland's Tashaun Gipson, who was penalized on the play. Finley, who suffered a concussion during Week 3, was taken off the field on a stretcher with a neck injury but had movement and feeling in all of his extremities. ... Browns WR Josh Gordon entered the game averaging more than 100 yards receiving per game but was held to 21 yards on two catches. ... Trailing 17-6 with 11:09 to play, Cleveland opted to go for a fourth-and-15 instead of a 49-yard field goal and Weeden's pass to Gordon fell incomplete.
