The Packers ran the ball 41 times for 202 yards, their most carries since 2004 when they had 47 runs against Carolina.

Aaron Rodgers completed 15 of 20 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns. He was not sacked for the first time all season, and the Packers did not commit any turnovers.

They also had five fewer penalties than last week, with eight flags for 70 yards. Packers' tight end Jermichael Finley and receiver Brett Swain both sprained their left knees.

They'll have MRI's today, but the early word is that Swain might be out for the season, and Finley could miss a couple weeks.

Linebacker Clay Matthews went out after getting a blow to the head in the second half, but he said it was not a concussion.

The Packers have won two straight since the bye week, and they moved into sole possession of second place in the NFC North Division. They're 4-2, as they get ready for Brett Favre's return to Green Bay next Sunday when Minnesota visits Lambeau Field.

Green Bay sealed Sunday's victory with three second-quarter touchdowns, including a 71-yard strike to Donald Driver and a 45-yard pass to Spencer Havner.

Receiver James Jones scored the Pack's final touchdown. Inside linebacker A.J. Hawk, who only had nine snaps last week, had his best game of the year against the Browns with eight tackles including three for losses.

Green Bay racked up 460 total yards to just 139 for Cleveland. Derek Anderson threw for 99 yards and an interception, and Jamal Lewis ran for 47 yards as the Browns lost their second straight and fell to 1-6.
