Packers fall 27-24 to Cleveland but Rodgers sharp behind center

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Jake Delhomme's Cleveland Browns debut was a smashing success, just like what the Green Bay Packers have come to expect from Aaron Rodgers.

Delhomme led the Browns to a touchdown in his only drive and Rodgers threw one of his own in Cleveland's 27-24 win on Saturday night in the exhibition opener decided on Phil Dawson's field goal as time expired.

Delhomme went 6 of 7 for 66 yards, including a fourth-and-1 flick to Mohamed Massaquoi for 12 yards that set up Jerome Harrison's 4-yard TD run. Backup Seneca Wallace added two touchdown passes.

Rodgers was similarly efficient, reading a corner blitz for a 25-yard TD pass to Greg Jennings. He finished 12 of 13 for 159 yards, but the Packers lost starting running back Ryan Grant after a hit to the head.
