Noteworthy: White replaced Cobb as the primary slot receiver. He ran all but one of his 32 routes from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus, and caught one pass for 9 yards. … Newhouse’s lone snap came as an extra blocker next to Barclay, the right tackle, on Lacy’s 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. The play went to the left side, away from Newhouse. … Lacy has played 172 of a possible 206 snaps, or 83.5 percent of the plays, the past three games. In that stretch, he leads the NFL with 301 yards rushing, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Noteworthy: The fourth-and-1 direct snap the Browns ran in the first quarter technically counted as a defensive play, according to official NFL snap counts, even though the Packers had their punt return team on the field, which explains why four offensive players -- Harper, Kuhn, Bostick and Stoneburner -- were credited with a defensive snap. Barrington, Nixon and McMillian also were on the field for that play. … Hyde played the dime defensive back the first time after McMillian was benched following a coverage gaffe the previous week against the Baltimore Ravens. … Banjo replaced Jennings at safety for parts of the second half. … Palmer and Mulumba, who both started at the outside linebacker spots, didn’t get much done in the pass rush. They combined for just three hurries in 43 pass-rushing attempts, according to Pro Football Focus. ... Boyd, a rookie fifth-round pick, was active for the first time.
