NFL: Green Bay 31, Cleveland 13

Oct. 20, 2013 at 8:19 PM   |   Comments

GREEN BAY, Wis., Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Aaron Rodgers overcame an injury-depleted receiving corps Sunday, firing three touchdown passes in the Green Bay Packers' 31-13 win over Cleveland.

The Packers were without star receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones, and tight end Jermichael Finley was carried off the field on a stretcher in the third quarter after taking a hard shot to the head from Cleveland safety Tashuan Gipson.

Rodgers completed eight passes for 103 yards and a score to second-year wide receiver Jarrett Boykin. Overall, he threw for 260 yards on 25-of-36 efficiency for the Packers (4-2), who ran off their 10th consecutive home win.

Finley hauled in a scoring strike before exiting and Jordy Nelson caught a touchdown pass for Green Bay.

Cleveland (3-4) dropped a second straight as Brandon Weeden was limited to just 17-of-42 through the air for 149 yards with a TD and an interception.
