Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams were on song earlier today as the duo led the Packers to a hard-fought 24-22 victory over the Cleveland Browns. The contest was an absolute thriller that ended with a nail-biting finish, courtesy of Baker Mayfield.

Baker Mayfield, who returned from injury, had a terrible night. Not only did he mess up the final TD, but he also had three other interceptions.
