This game features two teams on completely different scales.
The Packers have a quality team which includes the likes of Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and Eddie Lacy, and they are heading in the right direction despite losing to Arizona in the playoffs last season.
The Browns have been anything but a professional outfit in the past few seasons.
With the issues surrounding Johnny Manziel seemingly behind them, they went and signed the injury prone quarterback Robert Griffin III which will only give them more problems this season.
It’s no secret that the 2016/2017 season will be a rebuilding one for the Browns. Having lost nine of their last 10 games last season, the Browns are unlikely to make a playoff run this year, but they still have something to play for.
An improved season will see the Browns stay relevant in the NFL, but another disappointing season could see them slip out of favor with even their own fans.
The signing of Robert Griffin III is an unusual one, but they needed a quarterback who has established himself in the league, which Griffin has done, and it should see an improved offense take the field.
Backup quarterbacks Josh McCown, Austin Davis and Cody Kessler will likely be used in the preseason game against the Packers, but Griffin is a confirmed starter.
His work during practice was good as he connected with rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman for multiple big passes and the offense looks good enough to keep them in the game, but its the defensive side which bettors should be worried about.
Green Bay Packers
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has never been a fan of playing preseason football, so don’t be surprised if the star gunslinger sits this one out as Brett Hundley will likely start for the Packers against the Browns.
By all accounts Hundley has been practicing well with the team throughout the offseason and his completion of two-minute drills has been seen as his shining light.
The fifth-round draft pick will be missing a couple of key targets which includes Jordy Nelson who is giving himself more time to recover from his knee injury which kept him out for most of last season.
The Packers were annoyed that the Hall of Fame game did not take place on Sunday as it interrupts their schedule, but they should come out firing against a Browns team which will be trying to find its groove all season long.

Free NFL Betting Prediction: Packers -13
This should be one-way traffic for the Green Bay Packers who have the class edge in every aspect.
The Browns will be trying to find their way throughout the preseason, but the Packers already know their place and they should be tough to keep up with on the offensive front.
