Tom Lynn /Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Green Bay Packers (3-2) will look to improve to 3-0 this season at Lambeau Field when they host the Browns on Sunday.

Cleveland comes in at 3-3 and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn’t expecting an easy game against their defense.

“They play their scheme really well,” Rodgers said.  “It’s going to be a tough challenge for us.  I know they’re going to throw a lot of stuff at us.”

Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy said this week that both teams are pretty familiar with each other.

“It’s a team that’s getting better.  They’ve done a lot of good things,” McCarthy said.  “Defensively there’s some carryover to how they run their defensive scheme and how we play our scheme.”

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has received some criticism off the field from fans this week, but he isn’t worried.

“I got very good ear muffs on,” Weeden said.  “You can’t listen to it.  All I care about is what goes on inside this building.  If the guys in this building have my back and I have theirs and we’re all on the same page, it really doesn’t matter what else is being said.”
