Brief Recap: Green Bay Packers Defeat Browns 31-3

New, comments

It's hard to find fault when your team wins 31-3. And the Packers did little wrong, the only complaint is some bad penalties.

After a shaky 1st quarter and a strong start by Browns QB Derek Anderson, who began the game completing his first 5 pass attempts, the defense clamped down and QB Aaron Rodgers starting making some big plays. In the end, the Packers offense had 460 yards, and the Browns only had 139.

The Browns' biggest embarrassment was not recording a sack of Rodgers, the first time his protection was perfect all season. There will probably be a lot of talk about rookie LT T.J. Lang, who had a great first career start.
