Packers vs. Browns Week 7 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 7: Green Bay Packers vs. Cleveland Browns
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 2-3 Green Bay Packers 31-14
Everyone is thinking the Packers will struggle with the pass thanks to injuries at receiver, but I think this is the game he erupts. Look for 350 yards from Rodgers and 125 from Lacy as Green Bay rolls.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 3-2 Green Bay Packers 23-13
Defense comes up big in this game, causing turnovers and helping out the Packers receivers-challenged offense with great field position. Crosby will be called upon again to make 2-3 field goals.
Adam Czech 4-1 Green Bay Packers 27-17
Who’s ready for a 5 WR set featuring Jordy Nelson, Jermichael Finley, Jarrett Boykin, Myles White and Jake Stoneburner? *crickets* Nobody? Oh well. We might not see a spread formation featuring Jordy, Jermichael and a bunch of guys we never heard of, but that doesn’t mean the Packers offense will go in the tank. They’ll have to work for it, but they’ll put up some points and back up another nice defensive performance for a shorthanded win.
Marques Eversoll 4-1 Green Bay Packers 24-13
Despite being without Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, I think the Green Bay defense will force Brandon Weeden into a couple turnovers. Offensively, I’d be surprised if James Jones can play, but I think they’ll put enough points because of two things: Eddie and Lacy. Packers win.
Thomas Hobbes 3-2 Green Bay Packers 21-10
This will be an interesting game to see how the Packers adapt to losing so many players last week; luckily Cleveland isn’t a powerhouse team and the Packers can make a couple mistakes without costing them the game.  Figure to see a more balanced offense as the McCarthy adapts to losing Cobb and potentially Jones while Capers likely dials up more exotic blitzes to account for losing Perry and Matthews.
Cory Jennerjohn 4-1 Green Bay Packers 23-10
When the most dynamic player on the Browns is tight Jordan Cameron, Cleveland is at a severe disadvantage. The Brownies have been good causing turnovers with five picks and four fumbles, but they also turn the ball over with nine giveaways as well. It’s not all rosy for the Packers as Mike McCarthy may not be able to dress the gameday maximum of 46 active players because of injuries of biblical proportions. Aaron Rodgers and Co. will wear this young defense down, but the Packers offense will chug at home.
Jason Perone 4-1 Green Bay Packers 28-3
I said it during the “No Huddle” pod and so it must be written.  The Packers, despite a slew of injuries, will start fast on offense and may even get a defensive touchdown this week.  The more Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden throws, the more mistakes he makes.  With an early deficit, he will be throwing a lot on Sunday.  Big Throwback Weekend win for the home team.
Chad Toporski 3-2 Green Bay Packers 26-10
This is going to be another ugly, defensive game. Aaron Rodgers and Eddie Lacy will keep the offense rolling in front of the home crowd, but Crosby will still have to put up a bunch of field goals. Despite a depleted linebacker corps, the Packers defense will keep Cleveland’s mediocre offense at bay (and perhaps score a touchdown of their own).

    We are going to win damnit…

    I think they win, too, but it won’t be pretty. Not expecting Jones to play, so all these new pieces in the passing game means: expect there to be receivers out of position leading to poor-looking throws and an extra pick or two.

    The good thing: Weeden will throw the ball to the other team, and the Browns have no run-game to speak of.

    Thankfully, it’s not Chicago or Detroit in Lambeau this week.

    let’s hope we win but I don’t think it’s a sure thing by any means. Injuries are going to hurt offense, ST and defense. Our pass rush will be that much weaker and our pass coverage by LBs will be really weak, I would think. I am placing a large bet on CLE to cover 10 or 10.5. I’ll be happy to see a 1 point Packer win. We can not afford any more injuries Sunday. Good thing this game is in GB or chances of win would that much slimmer. Let’s hope we defeat CLE/MN and have lots of bodies back healthy for CHI, also at Lambeau.

    Josh Gordon is a big-play guy that I think most teams would really like to have (if it weren’t for his off-field issues). Cameron is their bread-and-butter, but Gordon will kill you, too.

    On an unrelated note: Packers claim WR Chris Harper off waivers from the Niners. Big kid at 6’1″, 230 lbs, 4.55 speed. Played a lot in college on a run-heavy KSU team.

      WR @ 6’1″ and 230 pounds with 4.55 speed?

      Maybe he plays OLB too?

      An interesting pick-up, but one that I don’t believe will contribute much this season. Hopefully, the Packers will be patient with him and give him a year or 2 to develop. He’s an outstanding talent but raw. Once a QB prospect, he caught at least 3 passes in all but 3 games at Kan. St last season, amassing over 850 yards. I understand that he struggled during Seattle’s pre-season and then was stashed on the PS, off of which the 9ers signed him. They were going to convert him to TE but then released him to clear the way for a DL. Had he cleared waivers, Seattle was going to get him back on the PS.

    23-20 Packers. Packers eke out the win, but with the medical issues, a win is a win.

    Aaron Rodgers at home vs Brandon Weeden. I think that speaks for itself! Packers cruise to an easy win!

    The Packers should win this game even with all their injuries. I am a little concerned about timing and ball security on the offense side with the new receivers in there. In the D side, we’re up against Norv Turner, and he knows his business. We will need a pass rush from somewhere to keep Weedon off balance. Most important we can’t have a 4th qtr. meltdown and allow easy TD’s through the air like we have done in a few games this year. Packers 23- Browns 9. Go Pack Go! Thanks, Since ’61

    …and now the Broncos have waived Tavarres King, who they just promoted from their practice squad this week to keep him away from the Packers.

      Maybe TT makes another run at him and cuts White

        My guess is that he wouldn’t cut White this week. They need someone ARod is familiar with in there…

  10. GB should beat Cleveland, provided that they have no injuries at key positions. Those include any of the linebackers, Burnett, Jordy Nelson, Finley, Lacy, and as always, Rodgers.

  11. This season is shaping up a bit like 3 years ago. Lots of injuries, unknowns stepping up when their number is called. Need to have 4 bona fide receivers for A rod to toss the ball to. I’m not sure we are there.
