GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - The Green Bay Packers moved into first place in the NFC North division Sunday with a 31-13 home win over Cleveland. Aaron Rodgers threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns, despite being without receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones due to injuries. Second-year pro Jarrett Boykin filled in nicely, with 103 receiving yards and a touchdown. Tight end Jermichael Finley was sent to a hospital with a neck injury on a helmet hit to the neck and shoulder area by the Browns' Tashaun Gipson. He laid motionless on the field for over five minutes before he was hauled away on a stretcher. Preliminary reports said Finley had movement in all his extremities. The Packers jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and made it stick. The Browns got to within 11 on Brandon Weeden's only touchdown pass of the day to Jordan Cameron in the fourth quarter. The Packers drove right back, as Boykin's 20-yard scoring catch put a cap on Green Bay's 10th straight home victory. Eddie Lacy ran for 82 yards and a touchdown. Finley and Jordy Nelson hauled in Rodgers' other T-D passes, as the Pack improved to 4-2 on the year. Weeden struggled while completing 17 of 42 passes for 149 yards. The Packers outgained the Browns 357-216 in total yards, and held the ball seven minutes longer. Cleveland lost its second straight, and is now 3-4. The Packers will now play two straight division games starting next Sunday night at Minnesota followed by a Monday nighter at Lambeau against Chicago.
