Browns vs. Packers score, results: Aaron Rodgers leads Green Bay to Christmas Day win – Sporting News

A fourth straight win and a new team record? Aaron Rodgers couldn’t have asked for better Christmas gifts.
The NFL MVP candidate threw for 202 yards and three touchdowns against the Browns on Saturday night, leading the Packers to a 24-22 victory. With his first touchdown pass, an 11-yard strike to Allen Lazard in the first quarter, Rodgers passed Brett Favre for the most passing touchdowns in Green Bay history.
A record-breaking Christmas for @AaronRodgers12 ! #GoPackGo
Baker Mayfield, meanwhile, struggled in his first game back since being activated from the Browns’ COVID list. The 26-year-old was sacked five times and threw four interceptions in the loss, marking the first four-interception game of his career. Cleveland did find success on the ground, rushing for 219 yards as a team, but it was unable to overcome those costly turnovers.
