Packers defense shines in 17-0 win over Browns

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- 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 completed a 53-yard TD pass to Donald Driver on the opening drive.

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.
