Browns lose to Packers

Published 12:11 am Sunday, August 16, 2009

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers directed two long touchdown drives before departing, and Green Bay’s new 3-4 defense gave Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson fits in the Packers’ 17-0 win over the Cleveland Browns in their exhibition opener Saturday night.

Quinn and Anderson got their first game action under new Browns coach Eric Mangini. Both could take some pointers from Rodgers, who went 5 of 10 for 102 yards and a TD.

Quinn was better than Anderson, though both threw interceptions as Cleveland looked far away from improving on last year’s 4-12 mark, committing four turnovers and seven penalties.
