Delhomme, Rodgers impress as Browns nip Packers

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

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

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

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