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.
