GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) _ Aaron Rodgers guided an undermanned offense with 260 yards and three touchdowns, Eddie Lacy ran for another score, and the Packers grinded out a 31-13 win Sunday over the Cleveland Browns.
Lacy finished with 82 yards, while tight end Jermichael Finley had a 10-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter before leaving with a neck injury.
Green Bay (4-2) won its third straight game.
Rodgers finished 25 for 36 in methodically carving up Cleveland (3-4) despite already being without two of his top targets in injured receivers James Jones and Randall Cobb.
The defense took care of the rest against struggling quarterback Brandon Weeden, who was 17 for 42 for 149 yards. The Browns' Jordan Cameron caught a 2-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.
