Green Bay Packers (4-2) 31, Cleveland Browns (3-4) 3
Sunday October 20th 2013 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Aaron Rodgers refused to let a diminished receiving corps hamper his performance, as the Green Bay quarterback threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Packers to a 31-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday at Lambeau Field. After losing star receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones to injuries in last week's win, Rodgers was forced to rely heavily on second-year wideout Jarrett Boykin, who entered the tilt with just six career catches for 70 yards. Boykin rose to the occasion, racking up a game-high eight receptions for 103 yards and a score, while Rodgers finished an efficient 25-of-36 passing for the Packers (4-2), who notched their 10th consecutive home victory. Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley each added a touchdown grab, while Eddie Lacy rushed for 82 yards and a score on 22 carries in the win. Brandon Weeden struggled under center for Cleveland (3-4), completing just 17-of-42 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown with one interception. Jordan Cameron caught Weeden's lone touchdown pass and finished with seven catches for 55 yards for the Browns, who have lost two straight. NOTES: Green Bay wide receiver Myles White made his NFL debut and finished with one catch for nine yards ... Finley finished with five catches for 72 yards while Nelson added five grabs for 42 yards ... Willis McGahee led Cleveland's rushing attack with 39 yards ... Cobb suffered a broken fibula while Jones injured his left knee ... Cleveland finished 7-of-18 on third downs.

The injuries keep mounting for the Packers. Tight end Jermichael Finley suffered a bruised spinal cord in his neck against Cleveland but continued to have encouraging signs after undergoing further tests at a local area hospital. Nevertheless, his evaluation will be an extensive process, according to league sources, with his return indefinite. Finley will seek further medical opinions after he is discharged and a source said his short-term and long-term prospects for playing again will not be hastened with the team's blessing and support, the sources said. One source said Finley's return to the field is "obviously secondary" to his overall health.
