The Packers' No. 1 offense scored touchdowns on both of their drives in the first half against Cleveland on Saturday night, and Green Bay leads 14-0 at halftime at Lambeau Field.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers scrambled up the middle on a 3rd-and-10 on the opening drive and found Donald Driver deep down the middle for a 53-yard touchdown pass. Running back Ryan Grant had a 14-yard run off right tackle on the 7-play, 78-yard scoring drive.

After Phil Dawson missed a 41-yard field goal wide right on Cleveland's first possession, Rodgers led the offense down the field for another score. Tight ends Jermichael Finley and Donald Lee both made catches on the possession, Finley with a 12-yard grab on the first play and then Lee picked up 19 yards on a dump-off pass over the middle down to Cleveland's 7. Grant took it in two plays later on a 2-yard touchdown run.

Rodgers completed passes to five different receivers, connecting on 5-of-10 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown and Grant picked up 28 yards on the ground on six carries.

Green Bay's defense held Cleveland to 113 yards of offense in the first half. Cornerback Tramon Williams picked off a deep Derek Anderson pass midway through the second quarter and safety Anthony Smith picked off Brady Quinn in the end zone late in the half.
