Be nice to help out the defense, by keeping them off the field.


Defense shouldn't need any help. We should be able to win this game by punting on first down every drive. That's how bad their QB is. Not to mention their RB passed his prime a few years ago.

I'm not convinced that this game will be "easy". Although we would hold an obvious advantage if our guys were healthy and at full strengh - not the case right now. I still see us winning, but again I am not convinced that it will be easy...

I don't know why everyone is saying this should be an easy win, we are down to 1 wr and they have a pretty good cb in Hayden that shut down most of the receivers he had to cover. As was mentioned before they have a scary returner which we should kick away from. And their offense (yes alot better without Weeden) has some players to watch out for. Josh Gordon is a threat and I say watch out for McGahee he is getting back into football shape. With saying all that I say we still win by 8 I will call 21-13

I don't know why you label one or two as everyone. Sensationalism much?

Packers are down to Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin at WR. That's two, not one.

Willis McGahee has 164 yards rushing in four games with the Browns, but his per-carry average is at a mere 2.8 yards. And he also popped up on the injury report with a bad knee.

CB Joe Haden, WR Josh Gordon and returner Travis Benjamin (40 yard dash time: 4.36 seconds) are all big time players.


That being said, on any given Sunday anything can happen, right?


If the Packers jump to an early double digit lead, it's going to be a cake walk in which the defense will let the game be closer than it really was during the 4th quarter.

I could see 38 - 24 quite easily as much as I could see the Packers losing 17 - 20.

Packers win big, or lose narrowly.

I think this game is going to be closer than most think. Next man up has worked for the Packers in the past but I can't recall in the past having this many players out with an injury at once. The list is damning.

With that said, I do think the Packers win because we have Aaron Rodgers....and the Browns have Brandon Weeden. Rodgers is going to put the offense on his back and tear up the Browns secondary.

Joe Haden is a good CB and there is no denying that. However, he has shut down teams with average to below average quarterbacks. The best QB he has faced thus far is Stafford and Stafford tore the Browns up with 4 touchdowns. It will be up to Rodgers to put the ball where the receiver can get it. Jordy also needs to bring his A game as Haden will be on him the entire time (if not, Browns are stupid).

I believe the Packers will be able to execute the play action. Eddie Lacy will get close to 100 yards and score his first touchdown since the first week of the season.

So long as the next men up come in and do well, the Packers should have this win.

Packers- 24
Cleveland- 13

To add, I'd love nothing more than to see Mike McCarthy give the ball to Lacy more when we are in the redzone.

GIVE THE MAN THE BALL AND LET HIM DO HIS THING!!!

Their special teams rocks with TB. That guy is incredible. Watch out for him! Otherwise we match up fairly closely with these guys with an edge obviously at quarterback.

I get the sense that this could be one of those "trap" games.
