After starting out with two losses in their first three games, Green Bay has come back to win back-to-back matchups to pull to 3-2 on the season. The Packers are still a half-game back of both Chicago and Detroit in the NFC North, as this division is shaping up to be quite a competitive one.

Cleveland lost for the first time since shipping Trent Richardson to Indianapolis. But they did so without quarterback Brian Hoyer, who is done for the remainder of the season. Brandon Weeden is in his place, and while he does have experience as a starter, it’s clear that he is probably not the long term solution for this team.

This isn’t the worst matchup for the Browns though coming in, despite it being on the road against Green Bay.

Cleveland’s best unit is its defense, as they rank inside the top-10 against both the rush and against the pass. The Packers offense is their best unit, but with the loss of receiver Randall Cobb for at least a month or two, they will have to spread the ball around differently.

Defensively Green Bay has been good against the run, but terrible against the pass. That means that there is potential for Weeden to have some success through the air. But the Cleveland ground attack will have to get something going to force the Packers to put at least five in the box.
