GREEN BAY - Spotted a 14-0 lead by their offense the Packers defense made life even more difficult on the Browns offense on this damp and dreary day at Lambeau Field. They limited Browns Quarterback Brandon Weeden just 2 of 11 with an interception during the first quarter.
After the game Mike McCarthy told the media how important it is to set the tone defensively at home which he said the Packers did. "I thought they did a really good job up front. I think having the extra guy really made a difference. AJ Hawk had another fine, fine performance," McCarthy said.
Aaron Rodgers appreciated the job his defense did. "When they can hold teams to 13 points, they've been playing great. So it gives us an opportunity especially when we're struggling like we did for a stretch there," Rodgers said.
The Browns managed barely 3 yards per play Sunday, the defense said the success comes from each individual doing their job.
"You know its human nature to try and get out of your element and try and do more than you’re asked to do,” B.J. Raji said. “I think we all have a good understanding that if we all do our jobs we'll like the result at the end."
A.J. Hawk who tied for the team lead in tackles with 12 seconded Raji’s opinion. "Good things happen when guys are selfless and want to go out there and win. I think today really proved it," Hawk said.
Davon House exemplified the unselfish attitude Hawk and Raji spoke of. House picked off a pass in the first quarter, his first NFL interception, and after the game he was more interested in giving credit to his teammates
"Once again I point to the other side of the room,” House said. “We've probably got the best d-line in the league. They make our job a lot easier."
While House credited the defensive line, others were willing to pour the praise on a secondary that helped limit Brandon Weeden to 17 of 42 passing.
"I think Coach Capers feels very comfortable doing different things just because of how good those guys (in the secondary) are, A.J. Hawk said. “When you team that up with this d-line and how well they're playing, it's a fun defense to be a part of."
Maybe the truest measure of how a defense is doing, points allowed, during their 3-game winning streak, the Packers defense is allowing just 13 points per game.
