Green Bay not happy with defense after Saturday night's loss to Browns

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay's defense has picked up where it left off last season, and that's unacceptable to Charles Woodson.

Despite being one of the stingiest defenses in the league by the numbers last year, the unit allowed 45 points in a 51-45 loss in the postseason to Arizona after falling behind 17-0.

The same thing happened Saturday night in the exhibition opener when Cleveland scored on its first drive and again immediately after the Packers lost a fumble to take a 14-0 lead in a game the Browns won 27-24.

Woodson says those type of slow starts and mistakes in a regular season game will cost a team already shouldering high expectations.
