As usual, this battle will be won in the trenches. Willis McGahee has to run the ball effectively in order to keep the Browns’ defense from tiring out in the second half. That won’t be easy against the Packers and their third-ranked run defense.
The Packers like to run the ball with Eddie Lacy, the top rookie running back in the league. The Browns haven’t been able to stop the run in the last two weeks as well as they did in the first four.
Aaron Rodgers is one of the top quarterbacks in the league; however, his favorite targets are not all healthy. Randall Cobb is out and James Jones is banged up.
Brandon Weeden might be able to exploit the Packers’ pass defense, which is one of the worst in the league. He just needs some time to throw. Jordan Cameron needs to have a big game and create size mismatches, as the Packers are also missing linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.
Despite the Packers’ injuries, their strong organization has supplied them with tremendous depth, and they should score another win on the not-yet-frozen tundra of Lambeau Field.
Prediction: Packers 20, Browns 13
